JAMRUD, 5 July: The security forces have imposed night-time curfew in some areas of Jamrud tehsil of Khyber Agency.
The local people were informed through announcements in mosques on Tuesday that curfew will remain in place in Ghundi, Godar, Hosi Khula, Bakarabad and adjoining areas from 8:00pm to 8:00am. The people were directed through the announcements to avoid going out of their houses during curfew time.
A large number of people, who were out from their villages for various reasons, spent night outside their homes due to unexpected imposition of curfew. They said the administration should inform the people about such things at least one day in advance to avoid trouble.
The curfew has been imposed for indefinite period. Sources said the curfew was imposed after reports of entry of explosive-filled vehicles in the areas under the jurisdiction of Swat Scouts.
