LAHORE: A full Supreme Court (SC) bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Iftikhar Muhammed Chaudhry directed to spend money acquired by auctioning 81 plots of former member of Punjab Assembly on development of Venus Housing Scheme, Geo News reported Thursday.
The SC disposed of petitions filed under public benefit. These petitions said Mian Shahbaz sold plots of the housing scheme; but, he did not undertake any development work there.
Police took Mian Shahbaz before the court. The apex court directed Secretary Housing to draw up a survey regarding bogus housing schemes and plan crackdown on such schemes.
The court held that it knew what is afoot in the country in the name of housing schemes.
