Delegation of displaced Sikhs travels to Orakzai

Peshawar, Oct 13 (PTI) A delegation of the minority Sikh community has travelled to the restive Orakzai tribal region of northwest Pakistan to assess the security situation in the area and condition of their homes which they had abandoned after the military launched an operation against the local Taliban.

The delegation, which was escorted to Orakzai by officials of the local administration, comprised elders of 58 Sikh families.

Official sources told PTI that the Sikh elders would bring their families back to their native areas after reviewing the situation on the ground and ascertaining whether their houses were intact.

Scores of Sikh families in Orakzai Agency were displaced due to the operation launched by security forces against Taliban and al-Qaeda operatives.
