SC stops Bahria Town Karachi from selling plots in landmark verdict

A three-member bench of the Supreme Court (SC) headed by Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan has ruled that Bahria Town Karachi cannot sell plots in Karachi.

The Supreme Court labelled the allotment of land to Bahria Town illegal and has prevented the developer from selling commercial or residential land in Karachi.

The court has also ordered an investigation into the illegal allotment of Malir Development Authority’s land.

The court has also ordered that an investigation is launched within the next three months against the people involved in the illegal transactions.

The verdict also states that a special bench is formed to supervise the investigation.

The judges also added that transactions between the Sindh government and Bahria town could be made legal, but the stipulations on these transactions will be established by the SC’s special bench.
