Islamabad prepares for PTI’s march, authorities to seal routes


The Islamabad Capital Police has gathered more than 1,100 containers, with hundreds delivered to the federal capital on Thursday, in an effort to prevent the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s ‘Haqeeqi Azadi March’ to the federal capital.

The capital will be completely sealed for a week following PTI chief Imran Khan’s announcement of a confirmed date for the march. Schools and colleges will be shut down for this duration and all exams will be postponed, sources said.

Sources claimed that 25,000 additional personnel will be brought to the capital to reinforce the ranks of the police force. The government will also provide around 50,000 rubber bullets and more than 60,000 tear gas shells to security forces in addition to ten drones.

In case of any disruptions, security agencies have reportedly prepared lists for the arrest of PTI workers and leaders.

Sources maintained that if the ousted premier announced a sit-in from Bani Gala, the residence will be declared a sub-jail and Imran will be put under house arrest.

As Imran Khan continued to build momentum for the party’s upcoming march, the ruling coalition decided to bar the PTI chief from storming the federal capital, warning that no one would be allowed to break the law.
