Forcibly Displaced Residents of Takhar Face ‘Miserable’ Condition

Residents of Takhar province who have been forcibly displaced, including women and children, are living in a “miserable” condition, according to the local sources in Khawja Bahaudin district of the northern Takhar province. The displaced families are currently living in tents.

Around 350 families, who are displaced residents of Khawja Bahauddin village, are now living in a miserable situation, a source told Kabul Now today, October 15. Some displaced women and children have fallen ill.

These families have been forced to leave their lands and properties by the Kochis – the Pashtun nomads – who have already occupied houses and properties of the locals. The source added that the Taliban supports Kochis in the land disputes and properties claims against the locals.

So far, the local Taliban officials have not commented in this regard.
