DHA confirms three properties owned by Musharraf



The Defence Housing Authority on Tuesday confirmed three bungalows were registered in the name of former President Gen (r) Pervez Musharraf.

The DHA wrote a letter to the district and session court confirming their presence.

According to details in the letter, Musharraf has a 2000-yard bungalow in Phase 8, Defence. The former president also owns two plots in DHA phase 8, DHA stated.

However DHA has remained silent over a bungalow in Army Housing Scheme which is considered one of the main properties of the former military dictator. Sources in DHA claim that Musharraf in fact has two properties in the Army Housing Scheme, something that even the court was unaware of.

District Judge South (Karachi) Nazir Amin Memon had initiated action based on the Special judge Islamabad’s ruling, in which the court had ordered freezing of Musharraf’s assets and properties.

The district judge had ordered seizing of four bungalows belonging to the former president.

The district judge in a letter had asked the Defence Housing Authority (DHA) to take action and submit a response in three days over the matter.

The Special Court had ordered the revenue and other authorities to confiscate the details of the former president’s property during proceedings of a high treason case.
