BAHAWALPUR:


Two men on a motorcycle ran into barricades erected in front of the Bahalwapur RPO’s office on Sunday night and were badly injured.


Several residents of adjacent neighbourhoods say the extra security measures have become a nuisance for them.

Large blocks of concrete have been recently placed on the road leading up to the RPO’s office in view of the deteriorating security situation. Residents say because of a lack of streetlights on the road, it is hard to make out the security barricades. Talha and Asif were on their way on Sunday night when they rammed into a concrete blockade on the road. They told police that they had been unable to make out the blocks in the dark. They were taken to a hospital for treatment where the doctors treating them said several people had gotten injured since the security detail was added on the road leading to the RPO’s office. Residents said the police ought to paste reflector tapes on the blocks in order to avoid a repeat of the accident. Relatives of Talha and Asif demanded that the RPO take notice of the situation and make arrangements so that travellers could see them from a distance.
