Traffic suspension due to administrative issues

Landikotal: Traffic was suspended at Michni post here for hours due to administrative issues here on Tuesday. Sources said Frontier Corpse (FC) personnel stopped some vans laden with rice bags enroute Torkham at Michni, despite apparently legal route permits were issued by them by political administration.

However, as a reaction Khyber Khasadar Force (KKF) personnel also stopped different big vehicles despite the fact they had also route permits. The FC personnel were of the opinion that their seniors had ordered them to stop small pickups carrying rice and other smuggling goods to Afghanistan via Michni and Torkham.

Later the officials of both agencies met and mutually solved the problem. However, the transporters faced immense problems due to suspension of traffic.
