KARACHI: District and Session Judge, Timur, Khalid Hussain Shahani, on Thursday issued a notification to East Deputy Commissioner (ADC), Karachi, Younis Dahiry, Mukhtiarkar Wazir Hussain, DSP Iqbal Shaikh from Karachi East, SHO Gulistan-e-Johar and another for destroying the home of senior lawyer Tufail Ahmad Mashori.
Mashori, through his lawyer, President of the Karachi Bar Association Naeem Qureshi, prayed to the court for the registration of a criminal case against income and police officials for illegally destroying his house under Section 22-A which was read with Section 25 of the Criminal Procedure Code. East Shahani’s trial judge, after hearing the arguments, issued a notification to the proposed suspect and fixed the matter for the trial on January 8, 2020 (today).
The Karachi Bar Association, while condemning the incident, has transferred a written complaint to the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Sindh, for an impartial investigation.
Mashori in his complaint has reported that he is the legal owner of his house which is located in the ‘Association of Architectural and Engineering Employees’ and despite having submitted original ownership documents with revenue authorities and police, his house was destroyed due to collusion with land. hands.
Mashori claims the local police support the “notorious land robbers” who are involved in a number of criminal cases. With the help of the local police, his private gangs were involved in bulldozing and destroying rental property belonging to the poor in the community.
Mashori claims that the Sindh High Court, vide its decision of 25 August 2020, in the constitutional petition number D-795 of 1993, has provided directions for holding community elections through an administrator.
However, the land mafia with the support of the local government penetrated and destroyed the homes of the poor.
