PESHAWAR: The Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) police registered cases against 40 workers of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) for manhandling trucks going through Nato supply routes, Express News reported on Monday.
On November 24, PTI supporters – as a protest against US drone campaign – had blocked Nato supply routes leading to Afghanistan.
PTI workers had staged a sit-in on the Ring Road near Chamkani where they checked hundreds of container.
In their quest to distinguish Nato trucks from regular cargo carriers, workers had broken the seals of dozens of containers for the inspection of goods and had brawls with the drivers in the process.
The call for a sit-in was earlier made by PTI chief Imran Khan, after his governing party in K-P passed a unanimous resolution against drones and set November 20 as the date of a rally.
In Nowshera, around 150 PTI activists led by K-P Assembly member Idrees Khan set up a protest camp near Khairabad Bridge where participants chanted anti-US and anti-Nato slogans.
A number of PTI activists in Kohat also staged a sit in at the Jarma Chowk on the Indus Highway to halt Nato supply trucks passing through the area.
