LANDI KOTAL: The political administration increased the number of Khasadar Force patrols in different parts of Khyber Agency and tightened the security cordon around check posts to bolster security and ward off terrorists.
Landi Kotal’s Assistant Political Agent (APA) Muhammad Iqbal Khattak said on Sunday that the deployment of Khasadar Force on the Landi Kotal-Torkhum-Shalman-Peshawar Road has been enhanced. In addition to strengthening the deployment on all check posts along the border, he said a number of other measures have been taken to ensure foolproof security in Khyber Agency. APAs, Tehsildars and Naib Tehsildars are personally supervising patrolling along the Torkham-Landikital-Shalman-Peshawar road and travel documents are mandatory for all drivers. “These arrangements will provide security to motorists and travellers on the Peshawar-Torkhum Road,” he added.
