The Sindh High Court had claimed that Bahria Town Karachi had collected billions of rupees from purchasers, before allocation of land and ownership.
According to a report, the NAB said that Bahria Town Karachi did not even own an acre of land at the time of the project’s formal inauguration. It said that housing society charged Rs. 15,000 from each applicant through fraud.
However, the High Court has granted 45 days to National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to register a reference after the inquiry completion, of the illegal allotment of 12,000 acre land by the officials of Bahria Town Karachi.
NAB Prosecutor General Waqas Qadeer Dar said that the inquiry was almost complete but it would still need at least four months to be filed for a reference. “We need more time to complete assessment of at least 9000 Dehs and acquire record from different departments,” the Prosecutor General said.
Dar said that a Google Earth Map of the allotted land has also been prepared on court’s directives.
Justice Amir Hani Muslim proclaimed that more time could not be granted, and asked NAB to complete the inquiry as soon as possible.
“NAB harasses people for years under the pretext of inquiries. You should complete the task in the given time and submit your report,” Justice Amir Hani Muslim said.
