ISLAMABAD: Islamabad administration has reimposed section 144 in the city a day ahead of PTI long march.

The government has once again imposed Section 144 _ banning gatherings, political meetings, rallies, and protests in Islamabad for two months.

“The additional district magistrate ICT prohibited all kinds of gatherings of five or more persons, processions, and rallies at any public place within the limits of district Islamabad, including the Red Zone by invoking Section 144 of Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC),” an official notification said.
