WANA: Deputy Commissioner South Waziristan Suhail Khan said on Monday dismissed the rumours that the people in South Waziristan had asked to form peace committees.
Speaking at a press conference, he said the local people should not lend an ear to such rumours. He said no tribe would be forced to form peace committees. Suhail Khan added the security forces and the local people rendered matchless sacrifices for the restoration of peace. He said the government would not ask the local people to raise a lashkar.
The official said the local elders would continue to get perks and privileges even after the merger of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
