SHC seeks from MKC layout plan of plot in Liaquatabad

KARACHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Monday directed Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) to place on record the layout plan of a plot in Liaquatabad area, to substantiate its claim that the plot was earmarked for construction of public school.

Justice Sajjad Ali Shah, who headed a division bench, gave this direction while hearing a petition filed by Nawabuddin who moved the court against KMC authorities for restricting him from raising construction on the plot.

The petitioner, who claimed to be owner of the plot admeasuring 250 square yards in Liaquatabad area, said he had purchased the plot after paying necessary cost for it. When he was raising construction on the plot city government administration restricted him from raising any construction as it claimed that the plot belonged to KMC and was earmarked as amenity.

He said senior civil judge had also given decision in his favour when he approached him through civil suit against KMC authorities for encroaching upon the plot. He added that later KMC appealed the verdict in court of district judge central but its appeal was dismissed. He said that authorities concerned were also not removing streetlight pole from his plot which was also obstacle to raise construction.

The court was pleaded to restrain the KMC authorities from hampering the construction on the plot and also order them to remove the street light pole.

In response to the petition, KMC’s counsel said the plot was earmarked as amenity and reserved for the construction of public school. He added that the amenity plot could not be leased out.
