ISLAMABAD – The Capital police on Monday discharged a case it had registered the other day against CDA Chairman Imtiaz Inayat Elahi and other top officials of the authority after finding no substantial evidence of the crime the officials were charged against, a police official said.
The development resulted after the Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani intervened into the issue and directed the concerned quarters to fix the things as per law at earliest, sources said.

Sources further maintained that earlier on Monday morning PM has also summoned Inspector General of Police Wajid Durani to PM House, where the latter confessed that capital police did not act in accordance with the law and tendered his apologies before the PM.

However, CDA Spokesperson Ramzan Sajid said he had heard the news but could not confirm it. However, he was of the view that a fair inquiry into the registration of case against a grade-22 official without prior approval of the federal government is needed.

Station House Officer Aabpara Police Station confirmed the news saying all was done on merit. He said he had visited the site and found no substantial clue endorsing the stance of the complainant.

“I have visited the scene where the PPP youth wing had established a protest camp but found that it fall in the vicinity of the CDA Headquarters building. And as per law CDA had the authority to remove any sort of encroachment from the area,” added SHO.
