Karachi’s Royal Park building demolition begins on court’s order

It is located on Rashid Minhas Road

Heavy machinery was used Monday night to demolish the pillars on the ground floor of the Royal Park Residency building on Karachi’s Rashid Minhas Road.

A eight-storey building has been constructed already and it will be demolished too. The two-acre land, which is adjacent to Aladdin Park, is said to have been allotted illegally to the building owner.

More than 417 apartments have been allotted to the people. Some of the allottees gathered near the building at night and asked the authorities to stop the demolition. They said that they have paid a total sum of Rs1.36 billion to the owner.

The operation is being carried out on the orders of the Supreme Court.

The court ruled that the land in question is “purported to have been illegally sold by the government of Sind's revenue department” and declared all its documents, including the allotment papers and the lease, to be unlawful. It said so in an order released on February 18.

The Karachi commissioner was instructed to demolish the building and clear the land in two months and present a report in court.

    This is cruel and foolish act by SBCA and KDA. the building was built with all approvals and NOCs , court should have consider the allottees of Royal Park who have invested their pensions, hard earned money and overseas remittances. Supreme Court has regularized many projects in Islamabad and Lahore also Bahria Town Karachi but because of Karachi the Supreme court was not even bothered about the public interest or third party interest. Being an overseas Pakistani I don’t see a Pakistan safe place for investments. I am strictly willing to collect all my money from Pakistan and bring outside some safe place.

    The Royal Park can be regularized by giving penalty to the builder ( i.e Quality Builders Khalid Masood) rather than the cruel verdict of demolishing project without considering the public interest.

    I want to request Media, Politicians Government Units and Supreme Court do not demolish the Karachi, also please consider the Karachi’s part of Pakistan and top of this please regularize the Royal Park rather than demolish.
