ISLAMABAD: President Mamnoon Hussain can now drive freely in Islamabad, without any fear of getting a ticket for driving without a license.
The head of state got his driving licence renewed from the Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP) office, like any other resident of the capital. Mamnoon’s previous licence from Karachi had expired and was renewed from Islamabad as per law after an NOC was issued by the Karachi Traffic Police that there were no pending tickets or challans against him.
Islamabad IG Tariq Masood Yasin and SSP Malik Matloob Ahmed were there to receive him at the ITP office.
Mamnoon was issued a token, 0441, and went through the procedure required for getting the driving licence like a common citizen.
