The rise in unexplained murders targeting influential individuals, including tribal elders and former military commanders, is a cause for concern. While the Taliban has pledged to investigate these incidents, the perpetrators behind these acts remain unknown.

It is noteworthy to mention that the district recently experienced the loss of a local mosque imam under mysterious circumstances, adding to the growing concerns surrounding these targeted killings.
