Most of the frontier tribesmen, including Wazir, Mehsud, Turi, Afridi, Mohmand, and Yousafzai of Malakand, traveled by bus and truck along the long but easy route to Lohar Gully. 

  The Kashmir state army stationed there was easily dispersed. Military historians estimate that there were only 500 soldiers who also faced a coup by Muslim soldiers. After the victory, the tribesmen went down and set fire and looted. Gohar Rehman says that “they looted the state arsenal, set fire to the entire bazaar, and looted the goods.” Tribal fighters shot anyone who could not read the word. Many non-Muslim women were enslaved and many jumped into the river to escape captivity. ‘The streets were devastated, destroyed buildings, broken shops, the ashes of burnt goods and tribalism.
