Court seeks record of Gwadar land allotment

The Supreme Court has directed the prosecutor-general of the National Accountability Bureau to present the record pertaining to an agreement regarding distribution of 3,197 acres of land in Gwadar.

A bench comprising Justice Javed Iqbal and Justice Raja Fayyaz Ahmed issued notice to the prosecutor-general on a petition filed by one Zahra Bibi.

The petitioner submitted that her land had been acquired by the government for the forest department without her consent. She pleaded that the Balochistan chief minister had committed to provide alternative land but so far it had not been allotted to her.

Counsel for the Balochistan Board of Revenue informed the court that through an agreement at the instance of NAB about 3,197 acres had been offered to 94 applicants in Gwadar.

The court asked the prosecutor-general to present on Oct 16 records regarding rights and settlements carried out from 1976 to 1996.
