According to the Shiite News Correspondent, On the 23rd consecutive day of their protest, the activists brought out a rally from the National Press Club to the D Chowk to highlight their woes as the top civilian and military leadership was inside the Parliament House.
The aerial security spotted the young men gathering at D Chowk and told the men on ground about the mob build-up. But before the policemen could control them, the activists crossed the security wall and barbed wires at the chowk. The protesters managed to stage a brief sit-in before the main gate of the National Assembly.
Police rounded up 24 protesters and booked them under section 188. A spokesman for the Youth of Parachinar said the protest was held to attract the attention of decision-makers.Back to top button
