KARACHI: Sindh High Court (SHC) on Monday appointed its Nazir to inspect alleged illegal construction on four plots in Karachi’s Jamshed Town area.

Karachi Point of View Welfare Association took Sindh Building Control Authority (SBCA), owners of plots, Managing Director of KWSB, sub registrar of Jamshed Town, KE and SSGC to the court against alleged illegal construction.

The petitioner stated that owners of plots, Irfan, Talha Mustafa, Shehzad Mughal and Samad Qureshi were raising construction against the rules of SBCA in Bihar Colony, Jamshed Town. The builders have used more area for covered construction in violation of approved plan while ignoring all the safety measures.

The petitioner pleaded to the court to direct SBCA not to allow the owners raise reconstruction at plots in deviation of approved plan and demolish all the illegal construction. The court was requested to restrain KWSB, KE and SSGC to provide utility services and to restrain sub registrar of Jamshed Town from registering subleases.

Welfare association requested the court to appoint its Nazir for inspecting on which SHC appointed its Nazir.

The court directed its Nazir to inspect the site, take photographs and submit report within 15 days.
