Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) on Wednesday ordered Pakistan Railways to retrieve its land illegally occupied under the name of residential societies.
This he ordered while hearing a case related to occupation over Pakistan Railways land.
The land given to PR for operational purposes was being used for commercial purposes, the CJP remarked.
Thousands of houses including highrise buildings have been constructed on the Pakistan Railways land, he said to Secretary PR during today’s hearing.
A railway station was supposed to be built on the land located in the city’s Gulshan-e-Iqbal, but the land was occupied. “How this all happened, who is responsible,” asked CJP.
