KARACHI: Enquiry report of an anti-corruption body revealed on Monday that former Karachi mayor and Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) Chairman Mustafa Kamal allotted 1,200 illegal plots in the metropolis when he was the mayor of the city.
The report revealed that the plots were allotted out of the land which was marked to be used for the construction of a treatment plant in the Mehmoodabad area of the metropolis.
Sources revealed that the anti-corruption body has sought permission to register a case against the PSP chairman. The request to register the case against Kamal is part of the enquiry into the TPT project.
The land meant to be used for the construction of a treatment plant was allotted illegally to residents of Lines Area, with the project still not functional.
Sources further highlighted that the total area of the land was 61 acres, which was divided into 1,200 residential plots and the design of the project was also changed. The change in design pushed the cost of the project upwards to Rs18 billion.
