Taliban’s threat to women voters

By: ABDUL SAMI PARACHA

KOHAT: The banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has warned women of Hangu not to take part in Thursday’s by-election, otherwise they will be kidnapped and killed.

The polling will be held for one seat of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly, PF-42 Hangu-1.

The threat by the Taliban was conveyed through leaflets found by people in Hangu bazaar on Wednesday.

Police confirmed the TTP had issued the threat

The Taliban had issued a similar warning during the May 11 general election and had taken away ballot boxes in some parts of Hangu.

Meanwhile, the deputy inspector general of police, Kohat region, has said that army has been deployed in the area because a militant attack can not be ruled out during polling in Hangu.

In a statement issued here on Wednesday, Ishtiaq Marwat, the DIG, said that out of 89 polling stations in Hangu 51 were declared very sensitive where personnel of police, Frontier Constabulary and army had been deployed.

He said the district had been divided into 15 units according to level of their sensitivity.

He said fool-proof arrangements had been made for the by-poll.
