Due to security concerns, Peshawar police have banned entry of all NATO containers and heavy vehicles, destined for Afghanistan, into the city. Due to the ban, GT Road near Chamkani was blocked due to a mess-up of heavy vehicles and cars going to Afghanistan on the road. However, later on, the police started diverting the traffic back to Nowshehra. Police also banned the entry of heavy traffic in Peshawar and also diverted the trucks containing rescue and relief goods. According to the police, this entry ban will last for two days. The drivers protested against the decision.
