Due to the potential for a backlash after Imran Khan’s disqualification, the Islamabad Capital Territory Police (ICTP) has been put on high alert. A traffic plan has been released by the department for both inter- and intra-city travellers, and vulnerable sites within the twin cities have been blocked off.

The agency has reportedly set up detours on both sides of the road near Express Chowk and NADRA Chowk, according to the department’s official tweets. As an alternative, traffic is permitted on Margallah Road, Ayub Chowk, and Serena Chowk.

Additionally, the ICTP has closed Bharakahu road from both ends to traffic as a result of the demonstrations at Athaal Chowk. It has issued a warning that travellers between Murree and the twin cities might encounter difficulties.

All other routes in Islamabad are open for traffic, the administration has added. However, because of the ambiguity of the situation, the traffic arrangements could alter at any time. You may follow the real-time updates for it on the official ICTP Twitter page.

According to recent claims and images posted on social media, unknown people have started putting burning tyres on the road.

The images and videos depict the areas close to the Faizabad and Khanna junction, as well as the Srinagar Highway, which serve as Islamabad’s primary entry and exit points.

According to reports, the biggest impacted locations include Golra, 26 No. Chungi, Iqbal Town, PWD, Faizabad, and Bharakahu. At the Motor and G.T. Road exits, protesters have also started to assemble.
