Lakki Marwat: On Wednesday, the district administration was successful in retrieving 186 kanals of land allocated by the government for a graveyard near Wanda Hajigul in Lakki Marwat district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), a news source reported. The land was retrieved during an anti-encroachment drive ordered by Deputy Commissioner Jehangir Azam Wazir.
The problem was brought to Wazir’s notice last month by the locals of Aatashi Michenkhel village when he arranged an open kutchery there. Wazir ordered the revenue department to start working on solving this problem immediately. The department was given orders to demarcate the boundaries of the graveyard, and launch an operation against the encroachers. He strictly pointed out that encroaching government land was a serious offence, and the administration of the area would not allow it.
The deputy commissioner recently held another open kutchery, this time in Mamakhel union council near Naurang Town. He listened to people’s grievances regarding transport and health issues.
