The Islamabad police authorities have strengthened security in order to ensure law and order and maintain peace in the capital, taking into account the potential attempt by the Azadi March participants to move forward from the position designated in the H-9 area.
By adding more anti-riot police and paramilitary force personnel borrowed from different provinces and divisions, Islamabad Police will be strengthened.
At various locations marked as sensitive points, around 9,000 more trained personnel will be deployed. It is worth mentioning that the JUI-F leadership in Islamabad has signed an agreement with the Islamabad district administration not to move any other place except for the H-9 area designated for the JUI-F meeting.
A police source told APP will make extra deployment in and around the Red Zone, especially in the Diplomatic Enclave.
The federal capital's security apparatus was fully mobilized to prevent any untoward incident, the source added. In the hospitals ahead of the Azadi march, the PIMS and Polyclinic Hospital administrations gave warning.
During the Azadi march, different departments including emergency departments are directed to ensure the full number of staff. Starting today until further instructions, the source added, this warning will remain implemented.
In the event that Azadi March participants tried to move forward, the source said that by putting barricades and using manual resistance, they will be stopped near Peshawar Mor.
Source responded by saying Islamabad police are committed to protecting citizens ' lives and property, and no one is allowed to disturb peace.
A woman from Rawalpindi dropped her newborn baby out of Rawalpindi's health worker's house because she didn't want a girl.
The healthcare worker, who works at Peshawar's Lady Reading Hospital, was taken into police custody. Police investigate her for the child's purchase. The woman was charged with paying Rs150,000 to purchase the child.
The policeman said that a report was issued on 15, after which they arrived at the house of the health worker.
Nevertheless, the woman claimed that she called the police herself, saying that she was attempting to steal the baby from her by her neighbors.
The mother of the child is still missing. The case is being investigated by the Waris Khan police.
In Rawalpindi's Asghar Mall Scheme on Saturday, five men, including four labourers, were injured as a three-storey building collapsed.
The house was under renovation and the site was home to the owner and four employees.
They were taken to the Benazir Bhutto Hospital by rescue officials. It is said that one person is in critical condition.
"The building was being built by at least 20 people," said one of the workers. He claimed the building had collapsed due to under-standard building materials.
In today's speech, Maulana Fazl said Prime Minister Imran Khan's government had lost moral grounds to rule the country, slamming it for' hatching controversy' against his' peaceful march.'
Not only the Indian but all the international media cover the Azadi March, the firebrand cleric said responding to the criticism of PM Imran about the reporting of his protest on Indian channels.
In response to some quarters ' criticism of no women's participation in the march, Maulana Fazl said that every society has its own norms and values, and no woman was stopped from taking part in the protest.
"Our women from their homes are taking part in this protest," he said. "We fast and pray[ for our success]... in legislatures we have women."
He continued that even female journalists fulfilled their duties and without hindrance covered the march.
"I would like to take an oath from you that you are going to say yes to any orders issued to you by the Joint Opposition, including the JUI-F," he said in his support in the midst of slogans in a sign of the approval of the participants.
"Nobody could ever imagine how much goals we have achieved in just three days in even 100 years." The JUI-F chief vowed to remain peaceful and achieve one goal after another by remaining within the constitutional boundaries until this ' illegitimate government ' was ousted.
As part of his movement to overthrow the PTI government, thousands of people marched alongside the JUI-F chief. The journey began in Karachi and ended in Islamabad, with many people from different cities joining in.
"Pakistan is not the Pakistan Allama Iqbal or Jinnah imagined," he said, adding that they want to follow their vision.
He criticized the foreign policy of the government, saying that in the past we lost the support of the countries that stood with us.
Directly addressing Prime Minister Imran Khan, he said, "You're pretending you're the prime minister, but if you were the prime minister, you'd have been behaving like one," he said.
"The govt says its door is still open to negotiation, but all the roads leading to the House of Parliament and PM have been sealed. So how are we going to have a dialog?" he questioned.
"You have become an illegal and unconstitutional government," the leader of JUI-F told the government, again calling for PM Khan's resignation. "Resign and return the right of individuals to elect their leaders." Today, Fazl said, the fake government set up a committee to discuss the Azadi March.

The highest number of train accidents, which is 19, happened with the worst financial losses in the month of June this year. Pakistan Railway lines faced millions of rupees worth of losses.

Four kids, including a girl, were killed at the In Mend Railway crossing near Khaarian as a result of the incident.

Police have all been set to computerize the Financial services and Welfare branch, said Zulfiqar Hameed, Deputy Information and Technology Inspector General (DIG) of Punjab.
Because of its position, the division of finance and welfare is of significant importance. On the one side, the division is responsible for funding, funds and budget allocations to procure each element from day-to-day force work to its development work.
On the other hand, it looks after the steps taken by the 200,000-strong police force for healthcare, including Shuhada packages, aid packages, and pension-related issues. An officer of additional inspector general (Grade 21) assisted by a DIG officer (Grade 20) is heading the branch.
An policeman decided to share that the Inspector General was proclaimed a former-officio secretary to the provincial government to exercise administrative and financial powers under the 2002 Police Order. He is therefore Punjab Police's chief purchase officer.
Instead of pressuring Pakistan's Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) beleaguered government, JUI-F Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman has set a two-day deadline for Prime Minister Imran Khan to step down.
"People gave their verdict... they need freedom from this government," said Friday's 66-year-old firebrand cleric, addressing tens of thousands of opposition workers camping in the H-9 sector.
After a five-day marathon journey–dubbed Azadi March (Freedom March)–which began from Karachi on October 27, thousands of JUI-F employees converged on the capital late Thursday night.
The key caravan of JUI-F men, led by Maulana Fazl, had stopovers in various towns and cities on their way to the capital, traveling in buses, cars and motorcycles.
On October 31, the caravan arrived in the capital and camped on a vast ground in Sector H-9 designated for protest where workers from other opposition parties – including PPP, PML-N, ANP, and PkMAP – joined them.
The two party leaders, the PPP and the PML-N, have thrown their weight behind the Maulana because their members face charges of corruption that they claim to be part of the political vendetta of Premier Imran.
For Gas Development Infrastructure Cess (GIDC) cases from next Thursday, the Supreme Court decided to hold regular hearings on a daily basis.
A tri-judge Supreme Court bench made up of Justice Mushir Alam, Justice Faisal Arab and Justice Syed Mansoor Ali Shah took the decision when it resumed Thursday's trial.
Nonetheless, on a petition from senior counsel Munir A. Malik, the proceedings are adjourned until next week.
A video link from the Karachi registry of the Supreme Court, Advocate Malik first offered his condolences on the death of a relative of the presiding judge, Justice Alam, and then asked the court to postpone the proceedings until Tuesday next week in view of the Supreme Court Bar Association's annual elections, saying that he was embarrassed to make such a request.
However, in view of the consideration that many counsel would have come to argue the matter, Justice Alam observed that he had come to court in particular despite his family commitments. "Is there any other trouble with that of the case or is the only reason for the election?" He told Justice Alam.
Makhdoom Ali, who represents a number of CNG stations, said it was in court's possession, irrespective of what decision was made.
