KARACHI:

A Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) team came with labourers and heavy machinery to evict encroachment from two illegally occupied plots on the land of Jinnah International Airport, Karachi on Wednesday.

Following Supreme Court orders, FIA bulldozed the boundary walls and infrastructure on two plots near the Jinnah Terminal. The federal agency is already investigating the issue of illegal allotment of airport land.

The said plots were under possession of a prominent business personality of the city, officials said.

Airport Manager Imran Khan was present on the spot along with senior officials of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to oversee the anti-encroachment operation. CAA Director General Khaqan Murtaza told The Express Tribune that they have recovered five acres of land worth more than Rs25 billion.
