Police stops construction on KWSB land,arrest eight securty guards

Police arrested eight security guards employed by two private builders as they were barred from starting illegal construction on a land of the Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KWSB) on Karaz Road.

SSP East Faisal Abdullah said after the KWSB informed the police about start of construction work on its land on late Thursday night, the Sharea Faisal DSP and its SHO reached the site and arrested a security guard of one of the two builders, who claim to be the owner of the land.

KWSB staff also reached the site and filled the ditches dug by the first builder’s workers.

On Friday morning, the second builder came to the site along with his security guards and stopped Karachi Water and Sewerage Board  staff from its work and resorted to aerial firing.

When the police was called in, the Sharea Faisal DSP and its SHO again reached the location and arrested seven security guards of the second builder.

Sharea Faisal SHO Israr Afridi said the case of
the ownership of the land was pending before the Sindh High Court (SHC), and the two private builders were claiming that they were the real owners of the land.

The police have
registered an FIR on the complaint of Karachi
Water and Sewerage Board engineer Irfan against the eight arrested private guards.

However, the KWSB official claim that the land belongs to the water board, saying that high pressure lines are passing under.
