General National

Deputy commissioner Rahmat Ali Wazir has banned holding of unauthorised public gatherings and rallies for a period of one month in the Lakki Marwat district over security threats.

An official said on Monday that the restriction had been imposed following intelligence reports that suicide bombers could target election rallies and political leaders.

He said that the district administration had received a letter from district police officer about the critical law and order situation and threat reports and alerts regarding suicide blasts and targeting of political leaders.

“The election activities are at peak with corner meetings, power shows and public gatherings taking place without implementing security guidelines by political parties and poll aspirants,” he maintained.

The official underlined the need for sensitisation of political parties about the importance of implementing the security-related standard operating procedures (SOPs) for their own and constituents’ protection.
