Peshawar, Mar.10 (ANI): In a bid to sustain its control over the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) before the Taliban start their own Shariat courts in the Malakand division, the provincial government has hurriedly signed the proposed Nizam-e-Adl Regulation, 2009.
Chief Minister, Ameer Haider Khan Hoti has sent the regulation for final approval to President Asif Ali Zardari, The Nation reports.
Talking to media persons here, Law Minister Arshad Abdullah said the proposed regulations will be implemented in the Malakand Agency and Kohistan district of Hazara Division before March 15 once the President gives his go ahead signal.
