Sindh High Court (SHC) has warned to initiate contempt proceedings against Karachi Traffic Police if roads around National Stadium Karachi are closed during the sixth edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL).
The brief verdict came at the end of the only hearing of a petition against the anticipated closure of roads around National Stadium during PSL 2021.

In response, SP Traffic apprised the court that only selective routes around the venue will be shut down temporarily and alternative routes have already been notified, adding that the rest of the roads of the city will remain open throughout the tournament.
