The Capital Development Authority (CDA) and the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) administration on Monday declared 122 properties in Islamabad’s Bani Gala, including the residence of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan, as illegal.
The CDA and the ICT submitted a report before the the Supreme Court, after conducting a survey of the area, as per the top court's order issued after a sou moto notice was taken.
The construction of structures in zone three and four of Islamabad are illegal as they are in violation of zoning regulations, the report said and added that Section 144 has been imposed in the area
The report also recommended demolishing all illegal constructions in the area.
The court had earlier taken notice on a letter, written by Imran Khan, which had complained about unchecked and unplanned construction in the Bani Gala area, widespread denuding due to large scale deforestation and the pollution of Rawal Lake with sewage.
The hearing of the case will resume tomorrow on Wednesday.
