Police baton-charge people protesting against demolition of Karachi's Nasla Tower

KARACHI (92 News) – The police baton-charged the people protesting against the demolition of Karachi's Nasla Tower.

The protesters scuffled with the police who also used tear gas to disperse them. They chanted slogans against the authorities and demanded that demolition should be stopped immediately.

A huge contingent of police and Rangers reached the spot to control the situation.

During the hearing of a case about the demolition of the Nasla Tower, the Supreme Court expressed its indignation at Jamaat-e-Islami leader Hafiz Naeemur Rahman.

Hafiz Naeemur Rahman said that the authorities cannot demolish Nasla Tower without paying the compensation. He requested the court to order the Sindh government to pay the compensation to the affectees.

The court remarked that no one can be allowed to do politics in courtroom, ordering the commissioner to submit a report after demolishing Nasla Tower.

Talking to the media, Hafiz Naeemur Rahman said that they would take to street if the court did not listen to them. He said that the prime minister had gone after the fake inauguration of KCR. "No one is providing us justice over K 4. Not a single drop of water has been given to Karachi during the last 16 years," he maintained.

He accused the PPP and the MQM people of squatting the land. "We all will strive for Karachi," he added.
