BARA, 09 October: As a punitive measure, local tribal elders set ablaze the house of three burglars in Kamar Khel area of Bara subdivision of the Khyber Agency on Monday, local sources said.

According to details, three burglars who happened to be cousins, were arrested red-handed while robbing a house in Sipah area. The accused Shaukat, Amjad and Mahmood were handed over to security forces by the elders of Sipah tribe.

Tribal elders told TNN that the accused had confessed to looting Rs350,000 cash and four tolas gold. Following their confession, the tribal elders along with members of the local peacekeeping committee set on fire the joint family house of the accused.

It merits a mention here that demolition of house or setting it on fire is part of the tribal traditions in some parts of the Fata. This action is usually taken by the elders of the concerned tribe when the perpetrators violate a specific law.
