Syed kashif Jafri | 10 years ago | Reply This is not just a water dispute but it is a conspiracy against Khurram agency peace. As you know khurram agancy is the only tribul area which was peaceful and under Govt control. Now anti state elements surronded this area and stop the water supply of this area. Local people are fighting against terriorists on their own without any sort of Govt support. They are trying to defend peace of this region. Govt forces should help the local people in their cause.
Sultan Ahmed. | 11 years ago | Reply As reported to the Express News, which published to the general public, it was on going dispute continued for a week, claimed 50 deaths and 70 injured. I am very afraid having this news, because it was not a remote area which was beyond the control of law enforcement agency. I am sure, they saw,they knew, they overlooked,left the parties unleashed so result before you.
