The Sindh government on Sunday imposed Section 144 banning the gathering of four or more people around Nasla Tower which is being demolished on orders by the Supreme Court.
Karachi Commissioner Muhammad Iqbal also issued a notice in this regard.
According to the notification, there is a complete ban on crossing the barrier, which has been installed by the administration, and violators will be prosecuted under Section 144 as well.
The ban will remain in place till the complete demolition of the tower. The Supreme Court ordered the Karachi Commissioner to employ 400 labourers instead of 200 for the demolition process.
As the demolition work of Nasla Tower at Ka-rachi’s Sharah-e-Faisal continues as per the or-ders of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, local au-thorities on Sunday imposed Section 144 in the vicinity of the site to ward off any untoward inci-dents.
Section 144 was imposed upon the directives of the Karachi commissioner and a notification was also issued to implement the orders after deputy commissioner east filed a request in this regard.
