An FIR has been lodged in North Nazimabad Police Station under the direction of Central District Deputy Commissioner and Administrator Taha Saleem against elements who had set up illegally parking near Bacha Party Shopping Mall, North Nazimabad Block B.

The Central district had abolished parking charges and it had become a free parking zone, except for the charged parking areas of KMC.

However, complaints were rife on the social media that some nefarious elements were extorting parking charges illegally from the public at various places.

DC Taha Saleem while paying attention to the public’s complains, issued order to make free parking in all charged parking areas designated by Central District.

However, once again, the extortion mafia started collecting parking charges from people at different places.

Saleem issued a directive to file an FIR in the concerned police stations along with strict action against such elements and according to which, the officers of the concerned department of Central Municipality filed an FIR in the North Nazimabad Police Station against those who set up illegal charged parking at Bacha Party Shopping Mall North Nazimabad and those who received the charges.

Saleem directed the concerned department to keep an eye on elements illegally charging parking fees across the district.

He ordered strict action against such elements so that the people of the Central District could be freed from this oppression.
