PHC declares PTI sit-in against NATO supplies illegal

PESHAWAR: The Peshawar High court (PHC) on Tuesday declared sit-in staged by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and its allied parties in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province to block NATO supplies as illegal.

The PHC gave its ruling while hearing a petition filed against NATO supply blockade in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, arguing that it was illegal and causing harm.

The PTI and its coalition partners in the provincial government have set up NATO supply blockade camps at five points in four districts of the province since November 23 last year in protest against the US drone strikes in Pakistan. The PTI activists were checking customs documents listing the goods being transported to Afghanistan and only those containers were being allowed to enter Afghanistan which carried goods other than supplies for NATO troops.

The protest started after a US drone had carried out a strike in the Tal area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Hangu district, causing several causalities on November 21 last year.
