Isalmabad: The administration of Hazara Division has announced that the convoy system in their jurisdiction will not be ended. They have said that they cannot compromise the security of the passengers.
“We cannot endanger the lives of people traveling from various parts of country to Gilgit-Baltistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa via Karakoram Highway. For that reason, the divisional administration has decided not to end vehicle convoy system in the areas under its jurisdiction,” Mansehra deputy commissioner Amer Khattak has told DAWN.
“The convoy is not allowed to operate even at night for security reasons. Until we are not sure about the safety of passengers, we cannot lift ban on the nighttime movement of vehicles in the division,” he said. Khattak said the government won’t go for steps, which could put the people’s life at risk.
