Sukkur: Massive robbery leads to road blockade
SUKKUR: Truck and bus drivers blocked Sukkur-Larkana road near Gaheja, Larkana district, late on Tuesday night in protest against police failure to provide them security. The protest was launched after a gang of bandits intercepted a large number of trucks, passenger buses and other vehicles and looted cash, mobile phones and valuables at Magsi Laro.
They thrashed those drivers and passengers who tried to resist them. Tyres of a number of trucks and buses were flattened when bandits opened fire on fleeing vehicles.
Later, drivers blocked Sukkur-Larkana road in protest against the incidents for three hours from 3am till 6am and shouted slogans against police for their failure to provide security to them. As a result of protest, traffic remained suspended.
Drivers Nadir Hussain and Mohammad Ramzan said that despite deployment of police in pickets, no security was being provided to them.
They complained that Gaheja had become a heaven for bandits where such incidents occur almost daily. Later, drivers dispersed peacefully on the intervention of police.
