RAWALPINDI - Owing to security barricades on Mall Road outside Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology (AFIC), where former president is under treatment, a worst traffic jam was witnessed on Thursday.

The law enforcement agencies by placing cemented blocks and barriers have closed one lane of Mall Road, causing problems for motorists. The traffic jam was witnessed during school timing. "What non-sense is this? Why law enforcement agencies have congested this road?" said Ali Raza, a motorist, who was stuck in traffic jam near AFIC.

After receiving intelligence reports, the administration has placed barricades and blocks around AFIC the other day. A joint picket of Army and Elite Force has also been established outside cantonment building adjacent to AFIC, while police patrolling has also been enhanced. Motorists demanded of the government to immediately remove all barriers and ensure smooth flow of traffic.
