All set to launch operation against D-Chowk protestorsNews
ISLAMABAD – The federal government has given the protesters an ultimatum of two hours to vacate Islamabad’s Red Zone area, a private news channel reported.
Thousands of protesters are staging a sit-in outside the Parliament House in the federal capital. The channel reported that all preparations have already been carried out to launch an operation against those protesting in the Red Zone area, with heavy contingent of the Pakistan Army, Frontier Corps and police on alert and awaiting orders.
“An operation will be conducted if the participants of sit-in do not disperse in a few hours,” a foreign news service quoted an unidentified security official as saying. “Leaders of the protesters have been given a notice in this regard,” he said, adding that they had been given two hours to disperse.
“If they do not the law enforcement agencies shall take action by removing them,” he said. A legal notice issued to the protesters, accused them of attempting to frustrate the government’s drive against terrorism.
