Oil Tankers Owners Association has stopped supplying petrol and diesel in Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Gilgit-Baltistan, Azad Kashmir, a day after intimidation due to unfair measurements by the incumbent authorities.

Oil Tankers Owners Association warned to stop supplying of petrol and diesel from Tuesday due to demands. The body is demanding that tankers be filled under a metered system and will continue the suspension until their demands are addressed.

The association claims that the Islamabad administration and Pakistan State Oil (PSO) officials have breached the February 20 agreement and have not responded to notices.
