The Interior Ministry in Balochistan has imposed Section 144 in Quetta for the next two days ahead of the national polls in Pakistan.

Polling in the country is scheduled to be held on February 8.

As per details, the Balochistan government has banned the display of arms, and pillion riding, (commonly known as double sawari), ARY News reported.

Pakistan witnessed a spike in terrorist activities in recent times especially in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Balochistan.

The incidents started to spike after outlawed militant group Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan ended its ceasefire with the government in November 2022.

According to ECP sources, out of the total 90,675 polling stations 46,065 have been declared as ‘sensitive’ or ‘most sensitive’ across the country, reported ARY News.
