ISLAMABAD:(APS)October 30, 2016-Islamabad police on Sunday said they recovered five Kalashnikov rifles, a pistol, six magazines, a bulletproof vest, alcohol and three tear gas shells from PTI leader Amin Gandapur’s car outside Bani Gala.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Revenue Minister Amin Gandapur’s car was stopped at a checkpost and searched. The car was impounded and Gandapur’s driver was detained by police, APS News reported. Police, however, let Gandapur go.

Gandapur rejected police claims, saying he was travelling with two licensed Kalashnikovs, and that there was a license present in the car. Police recovered the license, he claimed, adding that the police let him go.

The authorities, on Sunday evening, allowed women supporters of PTI to reach Bani Gala.

Emotions run high as PTI supporters head towards Bani Gala despite police preventing people from making their way to the area.

PTI Chairman Imran Khan speaking to the press on Sunday urged party workers to reach Bani Gala even if they had to climb mountains to do so. Protesters will then move onto Islamabad on Nov 2 for the party’s planned ‘lockdown’ of the capital, he said.

Police attempted to prevent protesters from trying to reach Bani Gala via lesser-known unpaved routes running through the wilderness by surrounding them on all sides. Protesters began stoning police and setting fires in the wilderness, after which police resorted to tear gas shelling.

A contingent of police led by Senior Superintendent Police Operations Sajid Kiyani used tear gas against protesters who were stoning them. Tear gas shelling has now subsided and workers armed with sticks are waiting for a signal on how to proceed.

As police plan a comprehensive operation in Bani Gala, reports claim that only officials and MNAs are being let into the area. Residents are also being let in after showing ID cards, but workers are not being allowed to get in.

Television footage showed a female worker face-to-face with police. “Check my bag, there is no security issue ─ I am a Pakistani,” she said. “I will go inside at any cost.”

Two police check posts have been set up to monitor the situation ─ one at Bani Gala and the second at Insaf House
