Hundreds of cars were also stuck in a traffic jam at the roads leading to the Karachi Press Club and the II Chundrigar Road.

"Security checkpoints had been set up at various points in the city--at PIDC and Shaheen Complex," he said. "This caused the traffic congestion." He said that Rangers had dismantled the checkpoints and the traffic jams would end in an hour or 15 mins.
