‘Time’s up to make deals’: Supreme Court judge not happy with Bahria Town’s Rs435b offer

The case has been adjourned till March 13

A Supreme Court judge thinks that Bahria Town’s offer to pay Rs435 billion for acquiring land illegally is not good enough. 

The time for making deals is over now, said Justice Azmat Saeed while hearing the case on Wednesday. “We will listen to the respondents and then make a decision.” There will be no deal at the next hearing, he added.

Bahria Town can increase its offer if it wants to, he remarked.

“We want dheel, even if there is no deal,” said Azhar Siddique, the lawyer for Bahria Town.

Bahria Town will give allottees space outside the boundary wall, said the lawyer. The people whose booking was done by marketing companies will be given the space, he explained. Bahria Town has arranged for alternative land.

The prosecutor-general said that the Sindh government will have no reservations over the decided amount.

The case was adjourned till March 13.

    There are many individuals who have purchased files of plots without any plot # allotted to them in Bahria sports city on installments. My son in law residing in USA has already paid almost 5 millions and is to pay 4 installments of 3.25 lakh each. What will b his fate. Is it in knowledge of Honourable judge of Supreme Court.

    When supreme Court has got everything in black and white, why scared to fine Bahria town ? Bahria town is basically a state Land grabber, or criminal. Fine and put him in jail for criminal act? If supreme Court will not heavily fine than more land grabbers will produce in the country.

    Punishment is very important, if you will not punishment to Malik Riaz, more land grabbers will produce. Last month, govt declared 148 illegal societies only in Karachi. Everyone knows except supreme Court. They are all land grabbers and no punishment. It’s shame on our honourable courts.

    When the government change, the corrupt person becomes hero and the action will be done. In Pakistan these are very common things. He will be released and media is already in the hands of rich men. So don’t waste time of public

    If you will clear Malik Riaz upon Land grabbing , he will do again and again. He is a state criminal mafia. Grabs land with complete force. Open your eyes , keeping the interest of poor investor’s. Grab him and squeeze, whatever he earned illegally. No punishment means judiciary is party in it.

    Everything is done n this country is through deals …. like new govts, new registrar, etc. What Malik riaz did is what common practice n Pak. If court wants to stop this practice start where it all starts from.

    He is trying to do a settlement with the Court. It looks as if money can settle anything. Malik Riaz should be put behind bars and made an example for others.

    If NO punishment to Land grabbers, it means , our courts are NOT capable enough to deliver. All Land grabbers are watching supreme Court decision. If NO punishment, or heavy fine than be ready, more land grabbers will produce and public will become right to say our honourable courts have ZERO performance.

    There should be no deal in this matter also by SCOP, as the have grabbed millions square meter without legal documents and what i am afraid is he must be linked with the governments passed for last 10 years, It is fare that if we want to change the system, just make an audit of land purchases, if they are right, let them proceed for future development, if they are wrong somewhere, Just make heavy fine, ban the establishment, and also proceed for other illegal land grabbers, which are a shame on society.

    Why should Bharia Town be treated special.
    Let the law take it’s own course. an illegality is an illegality and remains a illegality.

    Our Demand to Honorable CJ.
    Kindly look at those people who invested and satisfied with BT and waiting for possession or waiting completion of work.

    Bahria Head office has delaying all the process even for ready villa , apartment etc , they are not providing possessions to Innocent clients.

    We request you to instruct BT to provide possessions and open transactions at least.
    further disputed area BT should face and Honorable courts should ask more amount from land grabbers.
