MIRAMSHAH: Curfew lifted in North Waziristan after nine days by the district administration on Monday.
In a meeting the decision was taken, senior military officers, officials of the district administration and elders of the area attended it.
Curfew was enforced on June 9 in areas along Miramshah and Datakhel road, Macha Madakhel and Kharqamar check post following an attack on security forces by an improvised explosive device ((IED) in Doga Macha Madakhel two days ago.
A contingent of the army’s Quick Response Force was guarding the area when the IED struck a vehicle. A major, a lieutenant colonel and a soldier were martyred while four others were injured.
Observers said people came out of their houses and ran to markets to buy necessities after the curfew was lifted.
Parliamentary leader of the ANP in the KP Assembly Sardar Hussain Babak asked the government to send edible items to the curfew-hit areas.
Meanwhile, Mr Babak submitted a calling attention notice to the assembly secretariat on Monday to grasp a debate on the post-curfew situation in North Waziristan.
