PARACHINAR: The Turi and Bangash elders in upper tehsil of Kurram Agency on Wednesday asked the grand jirga, which had brokered the peace accord, to take action against the violators of the agreement.

Addressing a jirga of the two tribes on Wednesday, the elders including Yousaf Turi, Shabbir Bangash and others said if the political administration, elders of both the sects forming the grand jirga and the government failed to address their concerns, they would take action against the violators of the peace deal on their own.

They said 40 passengers kidnapped by militants were still untraced while 16 were killed and 24 others injured in the recent spate of violence against the passengers on Parachinar-Sadda-Thall Road.

They asked the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa governor and the federal government to take decisive steps against militancy in the area as Kurram Agency was bleeding for the last four years and the government was guilty of criminal negligence for failing to establish peace in the area.
