The illegal occupation of Shahkar Heights, a completed housing project of 300 flats in Surjani Town, by the land mafia not only continues but the orders of the Sindh High Court in the matter are also being ignored and violated.

It may be mentioned that last month surjani Town’s infamous and land mafia don, Zafar Hussain Fareedi, along with his armed gangsters and with the backing of the area police, forcibly took over illegal occupation of Shahkar Heights, a project of M/s Shahkar Builders & Developers, located in Sector 4-a, Scheme -41, Surjani Town, and evicted the projects security staff on gun point. Comprising 300 flats, Shahkar Heights is a completely constructed project and allottees were due to get its possession shortly before the illegal occupation of the project took place. According to the builders, th4e land of Shahkar Heights was legally and rightfully allotted in 1986 and leased in 1994. After that, its building plan was approved by the Karachi Building Control Authority, NOC obtained from KBCA for sale and advertisement of the project, water connection charges were paid to the Karachi Water & Sewerage Board and then construction of the project was completed after fulfilling all legal requirement. However, now the 300 allottees of the project are being severely victimized and deprived of their lawfully owned property through illegal occupation. —PR
