called Roza Klmrak. The boundary pillar No. X which should have been built
at Khizr Chah (well), has not been erected there owing to the low lying position
of the land round Khizr Chah, but has been built outside the British boundary on
the top of a prominent hill two hundred and fifty-eight yards north-east of Khizr
Chah in order that it may be seen from the boundary pillar on the Sraghar moun
tain, and that on Roza Khurak. The old karezes and cultivated lands belonging
to the Tarakis on the Tirkha nullah and elsewhere between Sraghar and Khizr.
Ohah are thus left on the north of the boundary line marked by pillars Nos. IX,
BI, B II, and the pillar marking Khizr Chah, i.e., No. X, and are, therefore,
included in Afghan territory.
We have agreed that the Khizr Chah (well) should be open to all persons whether
living in British or Afghan territory.
From boundary pillar No. XI, it runs north-west in a straight line W boundary
pillar No. XII, which has been erected on a prominent peak of a southern spur
of the Inzlan range.
Clause No. 4.—We have jointly agreed that from boundary pillar No. XII,
the boundary line runs south-westwards in a straight line to boundary pillar No.
XIII erected on a prominent knoll on the edge of the Surzangal plain. From here
it runs south-westwards in a straight line to boundary pillar No. XIV which has
been erected on the east bank of the Kand river between the Inzlan and Multani
hills. From this point the boundary line follows the centre of the river bed of
the Kand river, which forms a well defined natural boundary as far as the junc
tion of the Loe Wuchobai nullah and the Kand river, some two milos east of Rashid
Killa. Boundary pillar No. XV has been erected on the east bank of the Loe
Wuchobai nullah, at the point where it joins the Kand river.
We have jointly agreed that the Kakars should continue to enjoy, as hitherto,
the right of grazing over the tract of land named Man Zakai, situated on the north
bank of the Kand river between Rashid Killa and Ata Muhammad Killa.
We have also jointly agreed that the water of the Kand river belongs jointly
to the subjects of the British Government and His Highness the Amir of
Afghanistan. The Afghan subjects have the right of repairing and maintaining
their existing bands at Tang Bara, and the two Anizai Wastas and Wand, for the
purpose of irrigating their lands on the north bank of the Kand. Should subjects
of either the British Government or His Highness the Amir of Afghanistan wish
to erect a new band in the Kand river, they must first obtain the permission of
the district officers, who may be concerned, of both Governments.
Clause No. 5.—We have jointly agreed that from boundary pillar No. XV
the boundary line leaves the Kand river and runs along the east bank of the Loc
Wuchobai nullah, through boundary pillar No. XV (I), to boundary pillar No.
XVI, which has been erected on a small knoll on the east bank of the nullah. From
here the boundary line leaves the bank of the Loe Wuchobai nullah and runs
in a straight line to boundary pillar No. XVII, which has been built at a distance
d three quarters of a mile to the east of the Loe Wuchobai nullah on a prominent
