LAHORE – Massive deployment of police and barricading have taken place in the federal capital Islamabad and Lahore to prevent PTI protesters from entering government buildings.

Cops formed multiple checkpoints in the region to keep a tight vigil at agitators of Imran Khan's party who launched nationwide protests against alleged election rigging.

Over the weekend, Islamabad police said security was put on ‘high alert’ in the capital and Section 144 has been imposed that restricts all kinds of public gatherings.

Cops also intensified patrolling amid the possibility of traffic blockage near F-9 Park and advised masses to avoid the area around the location.

Capital forces also urged masses to carry CNIC with them and be cooperative with the policemen at checkpoints.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf announced over 30 locations in the Punjab province for its protests.

Protests will also be held in Sindh, where Haleem Adil Shaikh will be leading some of the rallies. In port city, PTI will be holding a protest outside the Karachi Press Club.
