Security – Kohat

Kohat is ethnically sensitive with a volatile security situation and a history of frequent escalations of violent tensions.

The situation has required additional police stations and occasional military patrols when required. Some refugee communities employ private night watchmen, whose remuneration is often unfortunately neglected. Refugee elders and school teachers are also active in local Jirga and Shura committees in some areas. The legal assistance provided by SHARP is of particular use in this area.
