Crackdown on sub-clans of South Waziristan
SOUTH WAZIRISTAN: The political administration of South Waziristan has launched a crackdown on five sub-clans of the Wazir Ahmad Zai tribe and three sub-clans of the Mahsood tribe.
Dozens of businesses of these clans have been sealed off and several tribesmen have been detained in connection with rocket attacks on a jirga convened by the NWFP governor and attacks on electricity towers in the region.
The clan of Ahmad Zai has been held responsible for rocket attacks on the recent jirga, and action has been taken in accordance with Section 40 of the Frontier Crime Regulations, under which the clan was pressed to hand over the men responsible for the attacks.
The assistant political agent has also launched a series of operations to crack down on tribesmen from Kani Guram, in connection with the blockade of Laddah Road, while another crackdown on a sub-clan of the Burki tribe is also in progress.
The assistant political officer of the area said that tribesmen from the three sub-clans of the Mahsood tribe had been arrested for attacks on electricity towers a few days ago. online
