A statement issued from the deputy commissioner's office stated that the district administration has nothing to do with the TikTok video of Gul Panra which has been made at the DC's bungalow in Landikotal.

The statement said no permission was taken from the DC for the video and the matter wasn't brought before the assistant commissioner either.
The statement further said it was a private family visit of Gul Panra, therefore, no question of official protocol arises.
The deputy commissioner said all guests are welcome, but entering a government building without permission and then making TikTok videos cannot be allowed.
He said action will be taken against those found involved in the incident.
Earlier, Hareem Shah, who has over a million fans on the social media video app was seen roaming around the high-security office and even sitting down in the chair used by the foreign minister.
After the video was widely shared on the internet and drew criticism from social media users, officials said they have initiated an inquiry in the matter.
