A case has been registered against the authorities responsible for approving the construction permit of Nasla Tower in Karachi.
According to details, the case was registered at Ferozabad police station on Tuesday, in which the officers of the Sindh Building Control Authority have been nominated for issuing permits for the construction of Nasla Tower.
According to the police, the names of those responsible have been sought from the Sindh Building Control Authority and Sindh Muslim Cooperative Society.
Earlier on Monday, the Supreme Court of Pakistan had directed authorities to take action against the officials responsible for issuing the construction permits for the illegal 15-storeyed Nasla Tower building.
Hearing the Nasla Tower case, a two-member bench comprising Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed and Justice Qazi Mohammad Amin ordered the anti-corruption department to register a case against those involved in approving the building plan. The court directed the police to register a separate case against the officials.
The DIG East has been directed to take immediate action against the officials who had approved the Nasla Tower building plan and present a report to the Supreme Court. The apex court has also ordered to seize the 780 square yards of the land Nasla Tower was constructed upon and directed the Sindh High Court’s (SHC) official assignee to take possession of the land and stop its sale.
