Swat rejoices Eid with no police on roads


Eidul Azha was celebrated in Swat valley with enthusiasm amid inappropriate security arrangements.
Police personnel vanished soon after Eid prayers came to an end. Security arrangements across the whole district, including Mingora city, were not satisfactory during Eid.
A few days ago, Malakand Division Deputy Inspector General Abdullah khan chalked out the Eid security plan. He claimed that all holidays of police personnel had been cancelled. He also said the police officials would be performing duties on Eid. On the other hand, ground realities were different. The police officials were not present at public places. The police provided security to mosques only on the first day of Eid.
However, a large number of people from across the country visited the valley to spend Eid holidays. Tourists visited Madyan, Bahrain, Kalam, Marghazar and Fizaghat. No traffic police officials were available to clear jam-packed roads.
