Islamabad: Chief Traffic Officer Islamabad Muhammad Sarfaraz Virk supervised the Islamabad Traffic Police to implement an effective plan to maintain traffic flow on highways and protect citizens from accidents during Eidul Azha.

Besides ensuring effective traffic management at public places, a crackdown was conducted on motorcyclists involved in one-wheeling and hooliganism on highways, issuing 4,154 challan tickets and impounding dozens of motorcycles in various police stations. CTO said that the impounded motorcycles included those without number plates, with incorrect numbers, altered motorcycles, and without licences.

Due to the effective arrangements by the traffic police, no incidents of one-wheeling, racing, or motorcycle accidents occurred in the federal capital. He further said that the efforts and duties performed by Islamabad Police during Eidul Azha were appreciated by all segments of society and citizens on various forums.
