The Sindh High Court directed Karachi Development Authority (KDA) officials on Saturday to immediately end the illegal occupation of a citizen's property, after a plea seeking contempt of court action against the Karachi Development Authority director general (DG) was filed in the court.
The petitioner, Aftab Majeed, maintained in the plea that the court had issued orders for the authorities to vacate his property, which covers an area of 40 square yards. However, the authorities have failed to comply with the order, he stated in the plea.
According to Majeed, he bought the property in Surjani Town from the KDA in 2007 and had submitted the required documents for the approval of the construction plan, but it was illegally occupied in connivance with KDA officials.
Majeed said the order for handing over the possession of his property was issued by the court on March 24, but neither KDA officials, nor the police took any action in that regard.
