Bahria Town lawyer Ali Zafar told the court that no plot was sold after the court orders. He said that construction is under way in Bahria Town. They have taken money from the people and the houses have yet to be handed over.

Investors’ lawyer Zahid Bukhari said that most of their investors are uneducated so it would be difficult for them to collect instalments via pay orders. A more convenient way to pay installments should be agreed upon, he said.

The hearing has been adjourned till November 29, Thursday.
