ISLAMABAD (Staff Report) – The Election Commission of Pakistan has ordered to deploy Rangers at the polling stations in the by-elections for NA-245 and PS-115.

Earlier, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan demanded of the ECP to deploy the paramilitary troops in NA-245 by-elections after his party’s election campaign camp was attacked at Karachi’s Five Star Chowrangi.

The ECP has directed Interior Ministry to deploy Rangers personnel outside and inside the polling stations in the by-polls for NA-245 and PS-115 scheduled for April 7.

Sources said that ECP also decided to deploy military at the polling stations in the by-elections for NA-267 scheduled for April 28. The ECP has written a letter to Defence Ministry in this regard.
