VIP protocol: citizens booked for obstructing president’s convoy
KARACHI (92 News) – The police lodged a number of people booked for allegedly obstructing the movement of President Arif Alvi’s security protocol in Karachi.
As per details, two separate cases have been lodged at different police stations on a complaint lodged by traffic police officers.
The Shahrah-e-Faisal police registered an FIR, accusing an unnamed citizen not only of obstructing the president’s convoy on Shahra-e-Faisal on Saturday night, but also prompting other citizens to not stop their vehicles to give the way to it.
On the other hand, President Arif Alvi declared that registering a first information report (FIR) against the person protesting the VIP protocol was ridiculous.
President Alvi took to Twitter and posted, “FIR against the person protesting against security is ridiculous. When people are inconvenienced they do react.”
“The long chain of official cars following me is despite the fact that I asked all officials present at the airport not to embarrass me with a huge protocol & that 1 or 2 cars in front and 1 or 2 cars behind may satisfy their security needs. Did not happen. We have to try harder,” he said.
