FC forces seized heavy weapons and bullets in Landikotal bazaar here on Thursday morning during a raid on the weapons market. A local person was also arrested on the occasion, levy force’s sources said. “Heavy weapons being sold at Landikotal weapons market are seized,” commented an FC official. “The security forces broke into the shops of the arms and ammunitions and took away guns and bullets,” the affected shopkeepers told while talking to media persons after the raid. “We are afraid of the forces, they said regretfully, adding that they have no illegal weapons above 12th bore,” they explained. “Many weapons and thousands of bullets and many binoculars were taken from their shops,” the shopkeepers said, saying they are helpless and poor people to raise any voice in favour of their legal and genuine business, which the administration had long ago allowed them to sell weapons under 12th bore, which is not prohibited. The raid on the weapons market continued in Landikotal bazaar for more than one hour in light of which the roads inside Landikotal bazaar remained blocked and the passengers and the common people suffered a lot in the month of Ramadan. The Khyber Khasadar Force’s personnel were also present during the raid of the security forces but were absolutely detached to the operation activities and searching. “I still don’t have details ….anyhow FC conducted raid for heavy weapons,” commented APA Landikotal Khalid Kundi.
