  1. For decades after the fall of the state of Chitral 1969, it has been a routine that armed Damelis are hired and brought to harass people and grasp properties. These people are hired for fighting mostly on the promise of share in the grasped land The One who pays for them makes sets money for their daily wage basis and also amount to pay for the one who is injured or killed. Many incidents have happened because of this practice but no strong measures have been taken so far on behalf of the government.
