DERA ISMAIL KHAN:


The political agent of South Waziristan said that Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s (PTI) ‘Peace March’ to the agency’s Kotkai area will not be allowed due to security threats. The political agent told The Express Tribune that the rally led by Imran Khan’s party was dubbed a peace march and hopefully there will be no resistance from the PTI’s side regarding the decision.


He warned that the security situation was not fit to host such a big rally and the decision to not allow it was taken at his own level without any federal government involvement.

Meanwhile, intelligence sources claimed PTI will not be allowed to be on the Chashma-DI Khan bridge, adding that police officials in the area were under threat and would be unable to provide security.
