ISLAMABAD: A three member bench of the Supreme Court led by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry demanded a record of the houses constructed on Defense Housing Authority’s (DHA) streets.

The plea filed by DHA requested to block a few roads, but the CJ overruled it saying streets and roads are constructed for people and cannot be blocked.

He said the constitution does not allow land lock.

Justice Khalil-ur-Rehman Ramday remarked that in such a case, poor people will have to buy helicopters to move from one place to another.

After seeing the maps, Justice Jawad S. Khwaja said that DHA had not shaped the streets on the maps and people have built houses there.
