QUETTA: Quetta-Karachi bus service has come to standstill completely. Transport companies closed their buses and locked out terminals. This follows killing of seven persons in firing on coach at Bencha about 50 Km south of Kalat two days back.
Transporters are of the view that despite repeated assurance of government for security Quetta-Karachi RCD highway remains in the control of robbers, dacoits and anti social elements. All law enforcement agencies including Police, Levies and FC have failed. Government had announced of forming convoys but buses are gathered by FC and there was no security behind. Such thing transports can do at their own.
They have announced unless RCD highway is cleared of dacoits, robbers and security is provided to transporters and passengers, they would not bring their buses on road.
It is learnt that due to non interest of government transporters were considering of blocking all national highways including Quetta-Karachi and taking their protest at the national level.
