The main Peshawar Bajaur road will also be close for all sorts of traffic in the tribal region, the press release said

Law enforcement agencies have already banned motor cycle riding in the entire  agency owing to some security threats.

It is pertinent to mention here that security has been beefed up in the district after two mortar-shells and a missile fired from unknown location by some miscreants landed at  Government College of Management Sciences Ghalanai  near the agency headquarters Ghalanai late on Tuesday night. However, no casualty was reported as only security guards were present in the college.
