KARACHI: The Sindh High Court has ordered the demolition of Makkah Tower near Karachi's Preedy Street within a month. At a hearing on Monday, Justice Zafar Ahmed Rajput took notice of all the buildings constructed on illegal land in Saddar.

"Our only option now is to demolish these structures." He instructed the director-general of the Sindh Building and Control Authority (SBCA) to prepare a list of all "corrupt" officers and present it in court by the next week.

"Give us the names and details of the officers who allowed the construction of illegal buildings. I don't care if they are dead, alive, or even retired." When the SBCA representative tried to interrupt, the court got irked. "What action have you taken against these officers? Are they still on the seat or were they suspended? Did you arrest the builder of Makkah Tower?"

The building authority's director-general replied that an investigation against the builder has been launched on Monday (today). "What were you doing earlier? Sleeping? The reason you're standing here [in court] today is because of your officers," Justice Rajput pointed out. He warned that the court will take the corrupt officers to the National Accountability Bureau if the need arises.
