Berating the commissioner of Karachi over sluggish progress of Nasla Tower’s demolition, Chief Justice of Pakistan Gulzar Ahmed directed Muhammad Iqbal Memon to ensure the illegal skyscraper is demolished forthwith.
The chief justice made these remarks while chairing the court proceedings on building’s demolition case at the Karachi registry of the apex court.
At the beginning of the hearing, he expressed displeasure with the commissioner over his administration’s inability to raze the residential tower. Justice Gulzar said the commissioner must leave his job if he could not perform his duties diligently. He also warned, “We will send you to jail straight from the court.”
Memon tendered an apology to the apex court. He was asked to go to the building and begin its demolition. The judge also asked him to submit reports regarding Tejori and Nasla towers.
Following the hearing, the commissioner, along with other officials reached the demolition spot and inspected the work progress. He said the tower was being razed from the inside while demolition of the outside portion will start in the evening.
