UPPER DIR - Qaumi Lashkar Friday claimed to have set ablaze and demolished over 120 houses and suspected hideouts of militants here in the remote areas of Dogdara. The Dogdara area consists of 25 villages and was, once, fully controlled by the militants. The Lashkar in the recent past also cleared the areas of Shatkas and Ghazigi of the militants. Sources said that government writ has been restored in Dogdara area and police and FC have started patrolling there and now the situation is fully under the control of local administration. Staff Reporter from Bajaur adds: The dead body of prominent tribal elder Malik Wilayat Khan who was abducted by armed militants a few days back was recovered from Damadola area, a strong hold of Taliban militants, here on Friday. The local people identified the dead body of Welayat and handed over it to his relatives. It is worth mentioning here that the brother of the deceased is serving with Bajaur Scouts and there is strong possibility that he was killed on the allegations of spying.
