Quetta (January 05 2008): The mourning procession of Seventh Muharram dispersed peacefully after reaching its destination amid tight security on Monday.
The procession, as every year, started out from Art School Road, passed through its traditional route of Archer Road-Liaqat Bazar-Prince Road-McCongy Road, and terminated at Hazara Imam Baragah Kalan. Mourners carried alam and Zuljinah, while reciting nauha.
Tight security plan had been chalked out with heavy deployment of police and other security forces’ deployment on the route of the procession and other sensitive areas. All the roads on the way of the route were sealed.
This year Government has declared Quetta one of the most sensitive cities due to the recent wave of terrorist attacks.
