    It seems violence erupted due to a rumor that Farooq sattar has been killed.

    But he just appeared on TV and said its only a rumor just to create more chaos and violence.

    However this rumor is being used to close down shops and create a state of panic and chaos.

    Farooq sattar is alive and well, giving a TV conference.

    It was a rumour.

    I can confirm that Khy Shahbaz is deserted and all buses plying on this route have disappeared. As I look out of my window, I see a lot of housemaids walking back to their homes.
