This study presents field evidence that the recently active dextral reverse Raikot fault truncates the MMT and forms the western boundary of the NPHM. The Raikot fault separates medium-grade, Mesozoic to middle Cenozoic mafic metasedimentary and intrusive rocks of the Kohistan island arc (Kohistan Sequence) from high-grade Proterozoic metasedimentary...
