Islamabad will not shutdown on Nov 2, IHC tells authorities

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday ordered the capital administration not to place any containers or block roads during the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI)’s scheduled “lockdown” of Islamabad on November 2.

The court directed government authorities to follow the legal course in case of protest anywhere in the capital other than the designated spot called “Democracy Park and Speech Corner”.

The space was designated by the Capital Development Authority (CDA) in 2014 for political activities such as sit-ins and protests.
