Operation to demolish illegal building in Karachi begins on SC’s order
February 25, 2020
KARACHI (92 News) – An operation to demolish the two-acre land, which is adjacent to Aladdin Park on Karachi’s Rashid Minhas Road, has been begun on the ground floor of the Royal Park Residency building. Following the orders of Supreme Court (SC), the local administration has begun an operation to demolish illegally constructed Royal Park Apartment. Three heavy machines are being used to demolish the ground floor of the building. It is noteworthy that a six-storey building has been constructed already and it will be demolished too. The two-acre land, which is adjacent to Aladdin Park, is said to have been allotted illegally to the building owner. More than 417 apartments have been allotted to the people.
Allottees demanded to crackdown against owner
Some of the allottees gathered near the building at night and demanded to crackdown against owner. “They have paid a total sum of Rs1.36 billion to the owner so their money should be taken back to them,” the allottees said. The court ruled that the land in question is “purported to have been illegally sold by the government of Sind's revenue department” and declared all its documents, including the allotment papers and the lease, to be unlawful. It said so in an order released on February 18. The Karachi commissioner was instructed to demolish the building and clear the land in two months and present a report in court.
