Transporters protest against abduction of truck drivers

Protesting the kidnapping of drivers, transporters blocked the National Highway near Sibi on Monday, causing great inconvenience for the motorists. A group of armed men had kidnapped four drivers, including Mustafa, Qadir, Gul Hassan and Khair Muhammad, from along the Quetta-Jacobabad Highway in Bolan area of Balochistan late on Sunday. However, Khair Muhammad managed to escape from the captivity of kidnappers, but the whereabouts of the rest are unknown.
“There were nine kidnappers, armed with latest weapons who took away the drivers leaving behind the trucks,” truck cleaners told reporters. The transporters on Monday blocked the highway by putting barricades and raised slogans against law enforcement agencies as well as the provincial government for their failure to curb incidents of kidnappings along the highways.
