Imran Khan’s Bani Gala Residency Declared Illegal


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan’s bid to rid Bani Gala of encroachments backfired on Tuesday when the Supreme Court was informed that 122 illegal constructions in the area included a portion of Khan’s 300 kanal residence itself.

The Capital Development Authority (CDA) and the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) administration submitted a two-page report, along with a list of 122 illegal constructions, in response to the apex court’s April 24 order in a suo motu case of municipal lawlessness in Bani Gala, Islamabad.

The notice was taken on a complaint by Khan himself, highlighting large-scale encroachment on the botanical garden and the park in Bani Gala going on unchecked. The park is not only shrinking in size but is also subjected to massive cutting of trees, threatening the wellbeing of future generations, especially since Pakistan is one of the worst victims of global warming, the complaint by the PTI chief stated.
