GILGIT: The Gilgit-Baltistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa governments have decided to close the Babusar Top to vehicular traffic from 6pm to 8am from Wednesday in the wake of the ongoing military operation ‘Zerb-i-Azab’ in North Wazirstan Agency.

According a handout issued by the GB home department, after consultation with the KP government it has been decided to close the Bata Kundi section of the Babusar Top from 6pm to 8am daily to avoid any untoward incident in view of the security situation arising out of the military offensive in North Waziristan.
