The Sindh Anti-Corruption Establishment visited the Sindh Building Control Authority headquarters in Karachi on Monday and seized four months worth of records of construction in Liaquatabad and Gulberg.
The office is located within Civic Centre.
The team visited the SBCA headquarters on the directives of ACE Central Assistant Director Zahid Ahmed Rahoojo.
He issued notices on November 2 to SBCA Deputy Director Jamila Jabeen, Deputy Director Kishan Chand, Assistant Director Muhammad Zubair, Assistant Director Aamir Khan, Assistant Director Abdul Khaliq, Building Inspector Nadeem Ullah and Building Inspector Shehbaz.
They have been asked to produce complete correspondence files for Plot No 5A 9/25, Plot No 5A 5/30 and Plot No ST-5 RS-16, Sector 11/1 North Karachi and North Nazimabad along with approved layout plans, revised layout plans, completion certificates, ownership documents and current status with pictures.
