City govt plans to vacate district courts



The district administration has completed planning to vacate the historical district courts of Rawalpindi.
According to reports, the district courts, constructed in 1898, have been declared a security risk, therefore lawyers’ chambers, National Accountability Bureau (NAB), special and civil courts, and offices of Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner and district administration are planned to be removed from the area.
The reports revealed that the buildings will be razed and a commercial plaza and residences for VVIPs will be constructed at their place.
The office-bearers of the District Bar Association have also been asked to vacate the district courts but the DBA leaders have rejected the plan and refused to vacate the area.
