ISLAMABAD: A case has been filed against 12 Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders and supporters on Wednesday. The leaders were accused of blocking GT Road at Islamabad last year in November. The police have also named 170 unnamed persons.
During the protests that followed the attempt on the life of former Prime Minister Imran Khan in November, the Police Station Mandra received a report accusing the defendants of organizing a public assembly in violation of the law and blocking GT Road, one of the main thoroughfares of the nation.
To denounce the attack on the PTI chairman on November 3, demonstrators stopped Rawalpindi’s GT Road from both sides a day after it occurred, disrupting local traffic.
The PTI then organized protests across the nation, holding them in important cities including Karachi, Islamabad, Lahore, Quetta, Peshawar, Malakand, Rajanpur, Bahawalnagar, Muzaffargarh, and Kohat, among others.
Later, Khan’s supporters demonstrated at the Faizabad Interchange in Rawalpindi. The protesters threw stones at the police and the Frontier Corps, while the Islamabad police fired tear gas shells to disperse them (FC). Meanwhile, PTI workers were detained in Islamabad by the FC and Islamabad Police. Traffic on Murree Road in Rawalpindi was stopped.
