They alleged that a police officer shot the tyre of one of the fully loaded tankers after the driver refused him the money he demanded.

Schoolchildren, commuters, and motorists are stranded as drivers insist on remaining here until all of the issues that have police officers extorting money on a daily basis are resolved.
