No one has right to block motorways: IHC chief justice


Islamabad High Court Chief Justice Aamer Farooq has said that no one had the right to block motorways or any artery, adding that such instances required immediate action.

Hearing a petition filed by Islamabad traders against the closure of roads in the capital, the IHC CJ said protests also disrupted diplomatic movements in Islamabad. “The state has the control over motorways and highways and it can issue directions in this regard,” he remarked.

The hearing has been adjourned till Friday.
