The Karachi Development Authority has removed stalls and shops from more than 5,000 plots in the city, according to a report submitted to the Supreme Court’s Karachi registry on Saturday.

At a previous meeting, the deputy superintendent of railways had told Justice Gulzar that the railways land in parts of the city had been “illegally occupied”. To this, the judge had told the authorities to have the railway tracks cleared by the deputy commissioners.

The work to clear the KCR route began the day after the court issued the order.
