PTI Long March: Islamabad police decide to close key routes with containers

Islamabad police decided to block off key routes in the federal capital with containers before the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) sit-in.

IG Islamabad Akbar Nasir Khan presided over a high-level meeting where the decision was made. It was decided to close the entrances to Islamabad at Faizabad, Koral Chowk, and 26 Number Chungi.

The major thoroughfares in Islamabad, including Faizabad, will be shut down, and 20,000 additional personnel will be deployed, according to the Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Operations.

DIG Operations Sohail Chattha stated that in addition to the police, Rangers and Frontier Corps (FC) personnel will be responsible for security duties. Faizabad will also be completely sealed off with containers.

In order to get from Rawal Dam Chowk to Taramri Road, travellers from Bhara Kahu and Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) will be diverted to alternate routes.

According to DIG Operations, SDPOs were given SOPs for installing containers, and a different traffic plan will be released for the general public.

Imran Khan had previously announced a power show in Rawalpindi’s Iqbal Park on November 26. In Rawalpindi’s power show, the PTI planned to gather political workers from across the country.

The political party had requested permission from the Islamabad High Court (IHC) to pass through Islamabad on its way to Rawalpindi’s Iqbal Park for the PTI’s power show.

The political party also requested permission for Imran Khan’s helicopter to take off and land in Parade Ground via the petition. Furthermore, the high court was asked to issue orders prohibiting authorities from harassing PTI workers.
