They showered petals on him and presented him with a traditional turban. Speaking on the occasion, the DPO said that century-old draconian law of Frontier Crime Regulation (FCR) was abolished and a regular law had been extended to the ex-tribal region. Therefore, as per decree, the Khasadar and Levies forces were made part of the police, he added.“All the transfers of police of tribal regions will be made inside the districts because the officials are more familiar with the behaviour and attitude of the locals,” DPO Hussain maintained.
