ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice Saqib Nisar on Friday said that the Capital Development Authority (CDA) should first take action against Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Bani Gala residence while hearing a case pertaining to illegal construction in the federal capital’s suburb.

During the hearing, the full bench headed by Justice Nisar said PM Imran should be the first person to take steps towards regularisation of his property in order for others to follow his example.

The premier’s counsel, Babar Awan, replied they will cooperate with the CDA to resolve this issue.
