The Jirga leader Ali Akbar alleged that currently 12 young men of their clan are in the custody of Taliban, and they are demanding high ransom, which is not affordable for them. He further said that they are receiving many threats from the Taliban side on daily basis , because Taliban wanted to disturb the peace of Kurrum Agency. Ali Akbar informed that over 750 young men of his tribe embraced martyrdom during last three years, in the war against the terrorists and the militants.

Syed Wali another member of the delegation, expressed reservation regarding the biased attitude of the political administration of Lower Kurrum.
