The land mafia is fully active in Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) rural areas as they are grabbing costly land located around side of Islamabad natural streams and nullahs without fear.

Capital citizens urged to the high-ups of PTI government especially Chief Commissioner to take urgent measures getting rid of land-mafia in the capital that is also responsible of creating hurdles in resolving civic problems.

The inner sources have revealed that first the land mafia level the land along side of nullahs and then the land covered into plots of different category and sold these plots. The ugly negative business was going on in the capital areas included Barma Town, Korang Town, Ghauri Town, Sharif Abad, Model Town Humak, Koral, Tarali, Tarlai Khurd, Bara Kahu and other areas.

Sources further revealed the administration of Sawan Garden, Aghoas & CBR Housing societies had allegedly grabbed costly land alongside of Sawan river and sold it later in the shape of plots. Action hadn’t taken against the administrations.  Even the apex court in past had directed the Islamabad administration to take action against land mafia and administration totally mum on this issue.

The illegal occupation on precious state land in different parts of the country is on phenomenal rise and the federal capital is no exception, as the illegal occupants here are getting active support of a trade union leader and the corrupt officials of CDA.
