The Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar on Wednesday said the Rangers force will be called in if Islamabad’s illegally occupied official residences are not evacuated in time of one month. During the hearing of the case the Additional Attorney General (AAG) Syed Nayyar Rizvi informed the two-member bench that police officials had illegally occupied the 140 flats in Sector G-6 of the federal capital.
The additional attorney general further said that rent amounting to Rs350 million was yet to paid. Rizvi further announced that if received, the rent payment will be donated for the construction of the Diamer-Bhasha and Mohmand dams.
