SHC Warns Karachi Traffic Police Against Closing Roads for PSL 2021

Sindh High Court (SHC) has warned to initiate contempt proceedings against Karachi Traffic Police if roads around National Stadium Karachi are closed during the sixth edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL).

The brief verdict came at the end of the only hearing of a petition against the anticipated closure of roads around National Stadium during PSL 2021.

Before quashing the petition, the court questioned SP Traffic East about the traffic management plan during PSL.

In response, SP Traffic apprised the court that only selective routes around the venue will be shut down temporarily and alternative routes have already been notified, adding that the rest of the roads of the city will remain open throughout the tournament.

After this, the court quashed the petition but warned to open contempt proceedings against high-ranking Traffic Police officials in case roads are reported to be closed unnecessarily during the PSL.

Note that PSL 2021 is set to start on 20 February as Quetta Gladiators will take on defending champions, Karachi Kings, in the opening match at National Stadium Karachi.

  • Oh please finish this suffering of citizens caused by the PSL matches. Life is already difficult and you add more suffering to commutters. Men and Women that have to drive all the way to get life moving are suffering badly. They are left with nothing else to be done because of alternate routes, congestions etc. For God’s sake take this stadium outside city so we can live in peace.

  • It looks like that the management of BCCP decides is a law & to pls them are Sindh Police (Traffic) department gets so active makes all the roads leading to National closed, without realising what happens to people of Karachi.
    These days teams participating in PSL r practicing only, why can’t they do it in Bahria Town where they hv built-in a big stadium an save us from unbearable traffic jams.
    BCCP should buy a land in high way & can develop a new stadium there instead of bothering the citizens of Karachi.
    So called incompetent members should come to senses, when if they come to watch the game, they come with security, please don’t become like the hypocrite politicians of the country, pray the people of this city don’t curse you from the core of their heart.
