DlLTKl (District).—
History .—Riza Beg, grandfather of the present Khan, was killed in
1856 at the gate of Bushire : he originally was Katkhnda of Ziarat in Boraz-
jun. Habibullah Beg, his son, was powerless ; and the district was taken
by the Khans of Borazjun. He was in the service of the Khan for some
years, and then transferred to Daliki as Kalantar under the Ears Govern
ment. After his death, Muhammed Riza Beg ruled as Kalantar of Daliki,
and was killed at Kumarij by Haidar Khan some 11 years ago, his wife
having been a cousin of Haidar Khan. Nur Muhammed Beg succeeded
him, and the district was sold by the Shah to the Nizam-us-Sultaneh. Nur
Muhammed was later given the title of Khan. He is on terms of enmity
(1912) with the Khan of Shabankareh, and an ally of Ghazanfar-us-Sultaneh
of Borazjun.
Owing to his close relations, as tenant, with Nizam-us-Sultaneh, Nur
Muhammed Khan has succeeded in getting the control of the villages
of Dava-guni and Banaki, on the Khisht plain, given to him; his
brother Husain Beg generally resides at Banaki. Thus the Kutal-i-Mklum
pass is wholly under the control of the Daliki Khans. His nephew Mansur
Beg farmed from Mushir-ud-Dauleh in 1911 the village of Jamlleh, in the
mountains up the Daliki river, and district. Extortion of large revenue
from caravans is the all-important object of the Khan’s policy.
In 1912 he was considered ill-disposed towards the British.
Geography .—This small district, containing 3 villages only, is bounded
on the east by the mountains ; smth by the Borazjun frontier passing
about 3 miles north of Qaraul Khaneh. West, the boundary lies along the
Zira border to the west of a narrow strip containing the large date planta
tions of Sarkavardun and continues about f mile to the west of the Shur
river till it reaches the mountains behind Behbara and Mazra’eh. North
by the bridge of Daliki : there is nothing but mountains each side of this.
Administraiwn.—DaAM is the property of Nizam-us-Sultaneh, the Khan
paying some 8,200 turn ns each year to Nizam-us-Sultaneh, and 500 tum~ns
to Maghz-ud-Dauleh, his ‘ peshkar ’.
Its revenue consists of about 8,000 t~i7n~ins from the date gardens and
many thousand tumans from taxation of caravans, and the monopoly of
the sale of grain to them.
^ The villages of Daliki district are Daliki (with about 400 houses),
Sarkavardun (west of the river), and Kaleh-i-Safid.
For climate, resources, etc., see Daliki village.—(CTh'dl’, 1912.)
A large village in the Kazarun plain west of that town. It was ruled by
Darudar Rajab in 1912, who had 100 tufangchis. The inhabitants of this
village were said to have joined in the attack on the 39th Central India
Horse in December 1911.—(Chick, 1912.)
