The irate residents torched car tyres and blocked the highway in protest against the rising number of deaths due to road accidents in the area. Thousands of Motorists were stranded on one of the busiest highways in the country.

Police were called in a few minutes later and they engaged the irate mob in a cat and mouse game. However, after a few minutes, the police were able to restore normalcy on the busy highway.

Traffic is said to be moving briskly at the moment after police were able to chase away the mob. They however asked the people in charge to erect a Footbridge at the area to avoid these unnecessary accidents.
