Bisham: The  Karakoram Highway recently turned into a battlefield when thousands of protesters, who were staging a sit-in demonstration, in Pakistan's  Mera area clashed with the police on Thursday, leaving three persons hurt, media reports said.

The protesters were demonstrating against  unjust distribution of wheat flour.

The protesters led by the nazims of various village councils affiliated with Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz blocked the highway for over five hours for vehicular traffic against the unfair distribution of flour sanctioned by the government, reports The News International.

Three persons also sustained injuries when people pelted police with stones while police baton-charged the protesters and fired teargas and shots into the air to disperse the people, the newspaper reported.

Local residents told the newspaper that thousands of people had joined the demonstration.
