Islamabad, May 2 (ANI): The talk between the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) government and the Tehreek-e-Nifaz-e-Shariat-e-Muhammadi (TNSM) over setting up of Darul Qaza appellate courts have failed to reach any conclusion.

The closed-door negotiations held in Timergarah failed to reach any understanding, but both the sides have agreed to discuss the issue in a meeting later, the Daily Times reports

However, after the meeting, NWFP Information Minister Mian Iftikhar Hussain, Awami National Party spokesman Zahid Khan and TNSM chief Sufi Muhammad told media persons that the meeting was organised to discuss about the ways to end militancy and restore peace in Malakand.

The TNSM chief Sufi Mohammad also called for an end to military operations in the province, but according to reports authorities immediately turned down his request. (ANI)
