According to details, hundreds of vehicles have stuck in traffic due to the blockage of II Chundrigar road by the people protesting against the suspension of domestic gas supply by Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC).
It may be noted that the Karachiities are suffering from 10 to 12 hours of gas load-shedding in residential areas of the city besides suspension of supply to non-export industrial units.
