Jirga warns action against militants

The Bakakhel Wazir and Gurbaz tribes of the Bannu Frontier Region on Sunday decided to take action against militants attacking security forces in the area. A jirga of the two tribes was held in Bakakhel Mandi which decided that houses of people found involved in attacks on security forces would be demolished and they would be fined Rs500,000.

The jirga said that the violators would also be expelled from the area. Tribal elders Malik Ahya Jan, Malik Dilawar Khan, Malik Amir Hamza and Haji Abbas Ali Khan attended the jirga. They said the attacks on the forces invited counter-attacks which incurred material and life losses to the people.

The jirga in its previous session one month back had decided that security forces would not be attacked in the area and the violators would be punished. However, the attacks did not stop.
