Peshawar - Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor Engineer Shaukatullah Khan has said that terrorists were making different pretexts just for killings innocent people particularly in tribal areas and we must take benefit from the rich tradition of Pakhtuns to foil their nefarious designs. Talking to a delegation of the elders of Khurram Agency Saturday, he pointed out that if killing of innocent people of Kurram Agency was attributed to sectarianism then what about other agencies of Fata like Bajaur where too the terrorists were playing with the lives of masses and not only there but they strike everywhere from Fata to Karachi with different pretexts.

The governor on this occasion offered fatiha for martyrs and also prayed for early recovery of the injured. He assured the delegation that every possible help on the part of the government will be extended to injured for their treatment.

On the request of members of the delegation, the governor directed the authorities concerned to ensure early payment of compensation/financial assistance to bereaved families. The governor also directed the authorities concerned to make foolproof security arrangements in the agency during last Friday of Ramazan, which will also observed as ‘yuam-i-al-Qudus’.  On the proposal of members of delegation, the governor directed the political administration of the agency to review local peace and security committees so that local people could easily recognise entry of aliens into their respective areas.

He said that this step would help foil the plots of terrorists.
