LANDIKOTAL: The leaders and volunteers of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam(JUI-F) on Monday blocked the Peshawar Torkham highway at Landikotal bypass as a protest on the ban of non-custom paid (NCP) vehicle movement inside district Khyber.

Mufti Muhammad Ijaz Shinwari, the general secretary of JUI-F and Qari Jehad Shah Afridi, the information secretary alongside dozens of their supporters gathered at Landikotal bypass and blocked the road for all sorts of traffic.

Talking on the occasion, Mufti Muhammad Ijaz Shinwari said that it was an injustice to the tribesmen that the authorities were not permitting the owners of NCP vehicles to move inside district Khyber.

Later, the administrative officials of Landikotal reached the protesters and talked with them ensuring them that the NCP vehicles would be discussed with the security force officials.

The JUI-F leaders ended the protest and reopened the road after they received a guarantee from the administration that they would resolve the NCP vehicle issue within a week.
