Judges here to dispense justice: CJP


KARACHI: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Mian Saqib Nisar maintained on Sunday that the people need not worry as judges are there to dispense justice.

“Those who legally own property near Nasir Jump in Korangi area would have their houses protected and be served justice,” remarked Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar while hearing a case on houses being bulldozed in the area.

During the hearing on Sunday, the chief justice barred the Karachi Development Authority (KDA) from razing down the houses near Nasir Jump in Korangi and ensured that justice would be served to everyone.

According to the petitioners, KDA had decided to bulldoze their houses as the authority was of the view that the structures were built through china cutting, under which plots of parks and land earmarked for public amenities are sliced for housing structures.

The petitioners said they were also served notices and asked why they were allotted the land if it was sliced through china cutting. The chief justice stopped KDA from further action and sought record from the authority and revenue board.

The drive against reportedly illegal structures has been going on in Karachi since quite a long time, with the authority concerned razing houses that were said to be built on amenity plots. A number of marriage halls have also been bulldozed during similar drives in various areas of the city.

Meanwhile, Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Mian Saqib Nisar said that his visit to the private hospital was inspection of the sub-jail. The CJP was responding to a question with regard to action against the Pakistan People's Party’s MPA Shajreel Memon, whose room at a private hospital was declared as sub-jail by the prison authorities.

While talking to journalists during his visit to the Karachi Gymkhana, the CJP said that cleanliness was seen in Karachi during his visit. Earlier, hearing an applications about recovery of missing persons, the chief justice observed that the Supreme Court has constituted a high-level recovery commission which comprises senior high-ranking officers of police and law enforcement agencies.

The CJP observed that the loved ones of petitioners will be soon recovered and directed the office to send the details of missing persons to the recovery commission for their prompt recovery. The chief justice also visited the Pakistan Secretariat to inspect the land selected to erect the Supreme Court’s Karachi Registry's new building.
