EOR THE YEAR 1918.
Mr. E. E. Gunter was in political charge of the Mekrau Coast throughout
Pereonnel. 25th l^bruaJy to
. 2u t h March when Mr S. N. Wilson acted
for mm.
No reports of landings of any arms and ammunition on the Mekran
Gun-mnning. Coast were received during the year.
Persian Baluchistan. . Tlle clnef even ts of the year under re"
view are enumerated below
In January it was reported that 40 of Eustam Khan's followers had made
a surprise attack upon Waznam, North-East of .Oharbar and killed one of
Mahmud Khan's subjects. There was some looting before the invaders pro
ceeded inland. On their way Durra Khan, son of Mahmud Khan, attacked
them, killing two and severely wounding two of the party.
Mir Barkat sent several hundred men with Ayub Khan and went himself
to Marz to collect more with a view to rejoining Ayub Khan later for the
punishment of the late Islam Khan's murderers who had taken refuge with
Sahib Khan. He came to Bint with a large following but fortunately an
amicable settlement was arrived at between the sons and brothers of Islam
Khan. Mir Barkat returned to Biyaban.
In the same month news was received to the effect that Mir Bahram Khan
of Bampur who was at Eask with 800 followers, intended to attack the Telegraph
party constructing a line between Suntsar and Charbar. It transpired, how
ever, that Bahram _ Khan had come to punish Sardar Mahmud Khan of
Dashtyari who had killed one Jan Muhammad. A peace was patched between
them at Champ where all the leading chiefs of the country had assembled.
In March, Ali Jami of Bahu came to Gwadur with twenty armed men to
release by force two Baluchis (subjects of the Sultan of Muscat) imprisoned by
the Wali of Gwadur for disobedience. As the men had been in imprisonment
for a long time and were in a weak state of health and the Wali was anxious to
avoid a fight, they were liberated and Ali Jami returned to Bahu.
In May, seven men, eight women and fifteen children who said they came
from Hamadan via Kermanshah and Minab arrived at Charbar and asked to
be allowed to proceed to Muscat. They said they had left their country on
account of the oppression of the Russians who were in occupation. They were
sent to His Britannic Majesty's Consul at Bandar Abbas.
At the close of July Mudat Khan, the former guardian of Hussain Khan
and Mir Hoti of Lashar, with 500 men attacked Hussain Khan's fort at Gaih
hut were driven on. Ayub Khan proceeded to Gaih with 200 armed men.
Two of Hussain Khan's men were killed and two slightly wounded before
the two parties came to an understanding.
Khalifah Khair Muhammad wfee, w T hen last heard of, was at Eanooch. Ho
twice announced his intention of attacking Charbar with a large following but
nothing came of it. The news of the surrender of Germany has undoubtedly
had a good effect on the people of Persian Baluchistan.
The Turks mentioned in the enclosed report were said to have left Biyaban
for Bampur to visit Bahram Khan. They gave out that they would shortly
return with arms and ammunition.
Old claims against the chiefs subsidised by the Telegraph Department and
the people of Persian Baluchistan to
alms, the- extent of Es. 1,634 were settled
during the war.
