ACE Investigation Deputy Director Mudassir Farqaleet said that they had received a tip-off that a powerful group of land grabbers had encroached on a 10 Kanal plot in the Commercial Market area of Rawalpindi. The illegal occupants had built a fun park and other commercial establishments on the land and it was being used for business purposes.
