Supreme Court bans Bahria Town’s illegal construction: Public’s billions go down the drain!




KARACHI: Supreme Court of Pakistan has imposed ban on the illegal construction work that was being carried out on the phase III and IV of the controversial Bahria Town here in the Port City.

Public who had invested billions of rupees on the unlawful project is panicked to see their lifetime savings go down the drain.

According to details the land on which Bahria Town was constructing Phase III and IV originally belongs to a Hindu citizen.

Bahria Town encroached upon the said territory, reckoning that as Government land, and allotted the plots.

But after hearing the case, Apex Court has passed judgment in favor of the said owner who belongs to the minority community.

Subsequently, Supreme Court has ordered Bahria Town to vacate the terrain on which it was building its phase III and IV unlawfully.

Alarmed Bahria Town Management is now endeavoring to pull wool over the Supreme Court eye by putting mud on the routes saying those were built long time ago.  

According to sources the future of Bahria Town is at great risk on one end and on the other end citizens who had handed over billions of rupees to Bahria Town are shocked foreseeing the looming debacle. The public’s sole hope for justice is from the courts.

It is pertinent to mention here that hundreds of cases are pending against Bahria Town in courts and stay had also been ordered in many cases. Yet Bahria Town’s relentless illicit expansion goes on unabated.

Bahria Town has allegedly usurped 40,000 acres of land while originally it was only granted 1330 acres.

Since reportedly the Police is also teaming-up with Bahria Town, Rangers have been instructed to implement the court’s orders.

Due to the raids carried out by Rangers for a week now the work at Bahria Town’s Phase II, III and IV has been stopped. As soon as the Bahria Town management sees Rangers approaching they put their laborers out of sight.

Affectees have appealed the court to order establishment of permanent posts around the Bahria Town manned by Rangers personnel.

Kasur’s Serial-Killing-Pedophile still at large: Relatives of eight (raped and murdered) girls appear before SC!



LAHORE: Parents and relatives of those eight girls who had been raped and murdered in Kasur since 2015 appeared before the SC bench at the registry here today asking for justice. 

On request from the investigation agencies, the CJP has given them 72 hours to nab the culprit. The three-member bench headed by CJP is hearing a suo motu case of the rape & murder of Zainab, whose body was found from a garbage heap in Kasur on ninth day of this month. Court took notice the very next day. 

The bench – that has again been told that eight girls had so far been raped and murdered in Kasur by one single pedophile serial killer (as per DNA reports) – reiterated that if the Police had taken action back in 2015 (when the first murder was reported)  lives of other seven kids could have been saved.

The court asked what the police was doing while so many incidents were taking place repeatedly within the remit to two police stations?

Court, unsatisfied by the ongoing investigation, has asked why the SHO not removed despite repeated incidents and complaints from citizens. 

Cynics go haywire wondering:

i) How could the nation expect any professional action from policemen who themselves had bought the job under the very noses of those who lament inaction? (Reportedly one can buy a constable’s job for half a million rupees, become ASI paying three and a half million and so on and so forth);

II) The Police Stations are sold; Extra-Judicial Killings are rampant; Policemen drawing meagre salaries live in palatial houses’

iii) The very moment a person enters a court (no matter which) he/she pays his way right from the lowest clerk to the highest authority to get his file move. How could court that has failed to weed-out corruption from the very institution it operates in expect imandaree from Police or other institutions?

When the court was told that tissues was acquired of 800 possible suspects for DNA tests, Police has been asked to use its conventional methods to nab the culprits instead of acquiring tissues of 21 million Pakistanis for DNA tests.
