RAWALPINDI: The local authorities have sealed main roads that are linking Rawalpindi and Islamabad. They took this step to hinder the entry of protesters of proscribed groups in the federal capital territory. The administration has sealed both tracks of Murree Road from Faizabad interchange to Mareer Chowk Saddar in Rawalpindi with containers and other hurdles in the wee hours of the morning. Rawalpindi Metro Bus Service has been suspended from Saddar to Faizabad until the next order. Murree Road has also been blocked from Faizabad to Chandni Chowk with hurdles and deployment of police contingents, reports said.
