Bani-Gala residence of Khan: SC summons details from CDA

ISLAMABAD (Monitoring desk): The Supreme Court has summoned documents of Bani-Gala residence of Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, Imran Khan on Tuesday from Capital Development Authority (CDA).

Bani-Gala residential infrastructure was threatened to be demolished by Chief Justice Pakistan, Mian Saqib Nisar if it turned out to be against the laws and regulations of the CDA.

“Building regulations must be abided,” the chief justice remarked.

Imran Khan’s counsel Babar Awan pointed out that CDA has no jurisdiction over private properties such as Bani-Gala rendering constructions around Rawal Dam as illegal.

In a hearing on May 9, 2017, CDA had declared the construction of Imran khan’s Bani-Gala home as illegal.

A report submitted by CDA in Supreme Court disclosed that the authority had declared 122 buildings as illegal, including Imran Khan’s Bani-Gala residence. It alleged that the construction was against the regulations of Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT).
