Notice issued to KDA on plea against illegal allotments

Notice issued to KDA on plea against illegal allotments

The Sindh High Court issued on Monday issued notices to the Karachi Development Authority (KDA) and others on a petition filed against illegal allotment of plots in the Korangi area.

Petitioner Abdullah submitted that KDA officials were issuing fake allotment letters for 1,000 plots in the Korangi 51-C area with the connivance of private citizens.

The petitioner’s counsel submitted that KDA land was being illegally allotted and sold to private citizens through fake allotment orders. He requested the court to restrain the KDA authorities from issuing illegal allotment letters and prayed before the court to order action against officials involved in the alleged scam.

After preliminary hearing of the petition, the court issued notices to the KDA, the provincial law officer and others and called their comments on August 8.  

Detention cases

The SHC directed police to file comments on petitions filed against detention of citizens allegedly by the Lyari police.

Petitioners submitted that police picked up Zahoor, Abdur Rehman, Aftab and Qasim from the Baghdadi and Kalakot areas and their whereabouts were still unknown. They said police personnel were demanding bribe for release of the detainees and expressed apprehension about their lives.

Police, however, denied arrest or detention of the men and submitted that efforts were being made to recover the missing persons. The court directed officers of the Baghdadi and Kalakot police stations to make efforts for immediate recovery of the men and submit a compliance report.

The court also directed the SSP South to file a joint investigation team’s (JIT) report in another detention case. Petitioner Abdul Rehman submitted that his son, Abdul Samad, was picked up by law enforcers from the Agra Taj Colony area on November 22, 2016.

The government law officer submitted that a JIT had been constituted to probe the disappearance of petitioner’s son and sought time to file the report. The court directed the SSP South to file the JIT’s report on August 3 and make efforts for recovery of the petitioner’s son.
