The federal government has decided to lift the security cordon in Islamabad after Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chairman Imran Khan called off the long march, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

According to the sources, the security personnel from Sindh and Punjab rangers deployed at the red zone area have been directed to go back to their camps after the end of PTI's long march. 

The government also issued directives to send back the visiting Sindh police to their native province.

“Imran Khan has called off the long march and as such, there is no need to retain the containers and the force from other areas in the capital,” the sources said. 

A total of 15,235 personnel and officers, including 4,343 from capital police, 4,788 from FC, 4,525 from Rangers, and 1,599 from Sindh police, took part in the security duties and maintaining law and order situation in Islamabad during the last couple of weeks. The withdrawal of the forces was decided in a meeting held on Sunday.  

At least 1,000 soldiers of Sindh Rangers were deployed at the sensitive places of the federal capital city in which commandos who conducted the operation at Nine Zero Karachi were also included, the sources added.  

All personnel will leave the site and go back immediately, they disclosed.
