KARACHI: Encroachers have occupied more than 20,000 acres of land of the Pakistan Railways across the country, said Ramesh Lal, the convener of the Senate committee on railways. He was addressing a press conference at the office of the DS Railways Aftab Memon on Monday. “The committee is trying to recover the land,” Ramesh added. He said that corrupt officials in the department are responsible for the losses incurred by the railways over the years and these will be exposed with the passage of time. “The committee formed to recover the railway lands has expedited its efforts and no pressure will be accepted in this regard,” Ramesh stressed.
