Dargai: Taliban threaten car-lifters, drug-traffickers
DARGAI: The Taliban at Sakhakot in Malakand Agency have distributed posters threatening action against drug–traffickers, car–lifters and other criminals if they refused to give up their activities. The posters suddenly appeared in the Sakhakot bazaar and the news then spread to the town and its adjoining areas. Sakhakot, a busy town in the Provincially Administered Tribal Area of Malakand Agency, is home to at least three big gangs of car–lifters.
Drug–traffickers and kidnappers too are active in Sakhakot. The government until now has failed to move against the car–snatchers, drug–traffickers and other criminals operating in Sakhakot and its surroundings. There were no previous reports about the presence of Taliban in Sakhakot and the rest of Malakand Agency.
