Islamabad: The Enforcement Wing of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has decided to impose Section 144 in a bid to put an end to encroachments and illegal constructions across the federal city, as reported in a leading newspaper on July 28.
According to details, Shah Jehan, the Deputy Director General of CDA, has requested the Islamabad Deputy Commissioner to implement Section 144 on CDA’s acquired land. In the letter addressed to the Deputy Commissioner, it was highlighted that movable and immovable encroachments, along with unapproved constructions on state land, have been causing hindrances to pedestrian movements.
Furthermore, the CDA is considering the imposition of the Section 144 in various areas, such as Jaaba Teli, Faisal Masjid, Khanna Bridge, Saidpur Village, Mandi Morr, Bhara Kahu, Chontra, katchi abadis, and parking on green belts. CDA Chairman Noorul Amin Mengal stated that Section 144 is being imposed to protect CDA-owned land and to take action against encroachments.
