Highway blocked in Balochistan after arrest of two women

Web Desk – May 17, 2022 

Gwadar: Hundreds of people blocked a highway between Turbat and Hoshab on Monday in protest against the arrest of two women.

The protesters alleged that the Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) personnel forced their way into a house and took away two women, alleging that one of them was plotting an attack on a vehicle carrying “some foreigners” on CPEC Highway.

Gulzar Dost, convener of Turbat Civil Society, however, rejected the CTD claim.

A number of people took to the streets in Hoshab and later staged a sit-in on the highway, suspending traffic between Turbat and Hoshab for hours. The protesters carried placards and banners inscribed with their demands and anti-government slogans.
