Karachi: Over 400 people have been issued notices to vacate land belonging to the Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KWSB) – a news source reported.
The said persons had allegedly installed encroachments on KWSB land and sewerage lines. Security forces, including police and Rangers, will assist KWSB in removing the structures.
MD Asadullah Khan has directed to follow the court’s orders in letter and spirit. The departments concerned have been asked to fulfil all legal formalities pertaining to the issue.
The operation will also be carried out in KWSB’s residential colony. The encroachers have been asked to vacate the land and other settlements within 30 days.
The water commission had earlier directed the KWSB to get its land cleared off all illegal land holdings. The Supreme Court had issued similar instructions to other civic bodies.
