KARACHI: For Karachi mayor and Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) Chairperson Mustafa Kamal allotted 1,200 illegal plots of land in the metropolis, said an anti-corruption inquiry report on Monday.
The plots were allotted in the Mehmoodabad area of the metropolis when Kamal was the mayor of Karachi. The land was marked to be used for the construction of a treatment plant.
According to sources in the anti-corruption body, permission has been sought to register a case against the PSP chairman.
The request to register the case against Kamal is part of the inquiry into the TPT project.
The land meant to be used for the construction of a treatment plant was allotted illegally to residents of Lines Area, with the project still not functional.
Sources added that the total area of the land was 61 acres, which was divided into 1200 residential plots and the design of the project was also changed.
The change in design pushed the cost of the project upwards to Rs18 billion.
Earlier in 2016, former city nazim Mustafa Kamal formed a new party in a direct challenge to the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM).
He was formerly associated with MQM.
