PESHAWAR, July 28: The residents of Kurram Agency have expressed grave concern over the closure of Parachinar Road for the past some years and demanded of the government to reopen it and provide protection to the people.

Speaking at a press conference at Peshawar Press Club on Wednesday Pakistan People's Party, Kurram Agency, president Dr Syed Riaz Hussain Shah said that the residents of the region were facing serious problems due to inaccessibility through the main road and had to come to Peshawar via Afghanistan.

He said that on July 17 unidentified persons had fired at the passenger van and killed innocent people including women and children and also kidnapped six of the people who were still missing.

He rejected the reports that ethnic violence had disturbed the area saying that there was no ethnic issue as both Sunni and Shiites had very good relations and peace bodies were very active in case of any problem.
