Karachi: An accountability court has indicted former Karachi mayor Mustafa Kamal and other accused in illegal land allotment reference on Saturday.

According to details, an accountability court judge heard the case against Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) Chairman Mustafa Kamal and other accused in illegal land allotment case.

Co-accused includes former Director-General of the Sindh Building Control Authority (SBCA) Iftikhar Qaimkhani, Mumtaz Haider, Nazir Zardari, Fazalur Rehman, Syed Nishat Ali, Mohammad Dawood, Mohammad Rafique, Mohammad Irfan and Mohammad Yaqoob.

All accused pleaded not guilty in the reference. Court, while issuing notices to the witnesses, adjourned hearing till December 05.

Speaking to media post hearing, Mustafa Kamal said that leaders have refused to transfer powers at grass root level.

 “It is surprising that former premier Nawaz Sharif on his removal said ‘Mujhe Kyun Nikala (Why I was removed?), but he didn’t question the removal of 57,000 councilors from their seats in Punjab,” he said.

He further stated that Prime Minister Imran Khan should stick to his word and restore local bodies system.

“In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, local council elections are yet to be held which is disappointing,” he added.

Holding Pakstan Peoples Party (PPP) responsible for Karachi’s misery, Mustafa Kamal said that more than Rs.8,300 billion have been spent over Karachi but the people of metropolitan city are still suffering.
