Additional Attorney General Nayyar Abbas Rizvi told the bench that Prime Minister Imran Khan has applied for regularisation of his Bani Gala properties. The premier’s residence falls into Zone 3 and 4 of the area, he said.

He further shared that there was no drainage system in the streets of the Bani Gala area, nor was there any provision for earthquakes in the constructions.

The chief justice expressed his annoyance at the Capital Development Authority (CDA) for allowing such constructions to take place, and said he could not believe what was going on at the authority.“Meting out justice isn’t just the duty of the courts; CDA should do something as well,” Justice Nisar remarked. “Where was CDA when these constructions were taking place?” he questioned.

The top judge told the CDA chairman that he lacked clarity and needed to conduct surveys first.

The CJP further directed the officials to regularise the 65 applications received so far, and to prepare a master plan for the rest.

Earlier on October 29, Supreme Court ordered Prime Minister Imran Khan to regularize his personal residance bani gala.
