Gahkuch, December 23: Angry protesters have blocked the Chitral – Ghizar road near Sher – Qilla and Buber protesting against the death of seventeen (17) years old Zubair, son of Muhammad Jan, and injury of political activists last night. Markets have also been closed in Gahkuch, capital of Ghizar district.
BNF, on the other hand, has said that the riots were started by supporters of Pir Karam Ali Shah and flared by security agencies, to manipulate the results.
The overall situation is very tense in the otherwise peaceful Ghizar valley.
