KHYBER AGENCY: Vehicles carrying Afghan transit trade supply were stopped and checked in the Khyber Agency on Sunday.
The vehicles were stopped in the Jamrud area of the Khyber Agency by the officials of the Khasadar force and were allowed to go to Afghanistan after being thoroughly checked.
Source said that security forces were ordered to check the vehicles carrying the transit trade supply.
The Afghanistan-Pakistan Transit Trade agreement is allegedly being misused in the wake of Islamabad suspending Nato supplies through the country’s land route.
Pakistani officials believe that the trade agreement is being used to bypass the suspension of supplies in the aftermath of the November 26 Nato attack, one of the many steps taken by the government in protest.
