ISLAMABAD: Nine Capital Development Authority (CDA) officials and three real estate agents booked for fraudulent allotments worth million of rupees.

Faiz Ahmed Watto, director Human Resource Department of the CDA was the complainant in this matter.
As per the FIR, legal heir of victims Taj Bibi and others submitted application for the allotment of plots in November 2017 and concealed the fact that they have already been allotted plots in sector I-10 in the year 1984.
