School-going students face traffic jam
Karachi, Sept 25: The students of schools situated around the Sindh High Court (SHC) building and
its adjacent areas, reached their schools about an hour late due to barricades
put up on roads by law-enforcement agencies due to the hearing of May 12-related
cases on Monday.
As precautionary measures, the all roads and alleys
leading towards the SHC were blocked by the law-enforcement agencies, which
caused massive traffic jams on nearby roads at around 7am in the morning.
The students of schools like YMCA, Hyderi Public School, JMA School and
others situated in the vicinity of the court were the worst affected and classes
could not be resumed on time as many of the teachers were unable to turn up to
their respective schools on time owing to traffic snarl-up.
administration had blocked the roads apparently to bar the activists of
political parties from entering the premises of the court, which is what
happened on September 10 when many unwanted persons flooded the SHC building,
forcing the court to adjourn the hearing. The parents, who were trapped in the
traffic, expressed their anguish over the inconvenience while school children
were seen crying in vans owing to hot weather. The News
