Manzoor Pashteen reportedly stopped from boarding plane to Karachi ahead of PTM gathering
ISLAMABAD - Manzoor Pashteen head of Pashtoon Tahafuz Movement (PTM) was reportedly stopped from boarding a plane to Karachi ahead of PTM gathering on 13th May. Manzoor was supposed to address the gathering, whose agenda revolves around the extra-judicial killings.

The news was shared by Mr Jibran Nasir on Twitter. According to Jibran, "First airline claimed Manzoor's name is not on the passenger list despite him having a ticket. Did not allow him to board. Then an Intelligence agency personnel standing at airport openly signaled staff at all ticket counters not to issue any new ticket to Manzoor Pashteen."

He then shared a video of Manzoor leaving Islamabad Airport.

Jibran also blamed a protocol officer at the airport for ensuring that Manzoor doesn't fly out of Islamabad.

PTM gathering will take place in Karachi on 13 May in Sohrab Goth. The gathering was to take place in centrally located Jinnah Bagh but PTM was forced to change the venue.

Daily Pakistan Global has contacted airline authorities, however, they were unavailable to make any comments.
