The official said peace had been restored in most parts of Bara, adding that no-one would be allowed to obstruct rehabilitation of the residents of Bara.
He urged media and local tribesmen to help facilitate the administration and security forces so that they could maintain law and order in all parts of Khyber Agency. The official said the administration was committed to providing the best possible services to people residing at relief camps. He directed the officials of various departments to work for honourable return of the displaced families.
