The Karachi Metropolitan Corporation has demolished 164 shops at Jubilee Market in three days. All shops were constructed on stormwater drains.

The development has been confirmed by KMC South Anti-Encroachment Deputy Director Iftikhar Ahmed to SAMAA Digital.

He said that the entire market has been converted into a pile of debris. The process to lift the debris has been postponed because of the lockdown in Karachi. “The process will likely start next week,” Ahmed added.

KMC's anti-encroachment teams worked in full strength to demolish the shops.

There were a total of 164 shops at Karachi's Jubilee Market. Out of them, 32 were demolished by KMC anti-encroachment department a few months ago.

On July 1, the floor of Jubilee Market collapsed and the district administration sealed the entire market.

Later, the KMC anti-encroachment department served eviction notices to the shopkeepers and started the demolition drive on July 28, Wednesday.

On the first day, shopkeepers staged a protest and chanted slogans against the district administration and KMC staffers. In the protest, the police baton-charged them and detained some of them.

The Jubilee Market was built on a stormwater drain 30 years ago.
