PESHAWAR: A family from Khuzai tehsil in Mohmand Agency demanded action against the political administration which was allegedly assisting their foes.

At the Peshawar Press Club on Wednesday, Ali Haider said he had a land dispute with Nawab and the political administration along with influential locals had formed a committee to resolve the dispute. However, Haider accused Nawab of bribing the political administration which in turn he accused of forcefully attempting to take over his land.

Haider said levies personnel had physically harmed him and women from his family after the move to grab their land was resisted. “We finally reached out to Khyber Rifles to stop the political administration - that's how the levies personnel stopped harassing us.” He said the political administration had been harassing him and even kept him in illegal custody for three days.

He said he had given full autonomy to the local committee to resolve the the dispute. However, Haider demanded the governor and other officials take action against the political administration.
