IHC asks for unbiased policy on illegal constructions

Islamabad: The Islamabad High Court has asked the federal government to present policy regarding illegal constructions in four weeks. The honourable court expressed that the Grand Hyatt and Bani Gala regularisation cases had put the court in a difficult spot.

The written order by a two-member bench, comprising Chief Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Mian Gul Hassan Aurangzeb, came as a result of a petition filed by a builder. The petitioner pleaded for the regularisation of an illegal plaza built on a park land in a private housing society of Islamabad. The petition used the cases of  Bani Gala and Grand Hyatt as a justification.

The Interior Secretary and the Capital Development Authority (CDA) Chairman, Amir Ali Ahmed, was present in the court. He informed the honourable court that a review petition was pending in the Grand Hyatt case in the Supreme Court.
