BARA: The Federal Services Tribunal dismissed a pre-mature appeal by hundreds
of sacked tribal policemen and referred their case to the Fata Secretariat, directing the authorities concerned to decide the matter within a month.
The order of the tribunal was received by the office of political agent Khyber Agency and other concerned departments on Monday.
A total of 715 Khassadar and Levies personnel were terminated by the then political agent Tariq Hayat in mid-September 2009 two weeks after the start of military operation against the militants in Bara tehsil of Khyber Agency.
The tribal policemen failed to show up for work after they were threatened by Mangal Bagh, head of the militant group Lashkar-e-Islam in Bara tehsil. Before the launch of the military operation against him, Mangal Bagh through his radio broadcast threatened personnel of the security forces belonging to Bara that their houses would be demolished and they would face other harsh penalties if they did not resign.
Some 106 Khassadar and Levies personnel were restored for justified reasons whereas other sacked personnel appealed to the Peshawar High Court against the decision. The court dismissed their appeal for being premature and referred them to the Fata Secretariat.
