KARACHI: The Supreme Court has directed the Karachi authorities to demolish the Nasla Tower through a controlled implosion within a week.
Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed heard the case pertaining to the illegal construction of the residential complex on a service road on Sharae Faisal.
During today’s hearing, the CJP directed the owner of Nasla Tower to compensate the occupants and ordered the Karachi commissioner to ensure payments are made to the affectees.
The court also issued the instruction to the concerned authorities to submit a compliance report within a week.
The bench stated the tower should be demolished by a controlled implosion and no damage should be done to buildings or people near it.
In June, the SC had ordered the tower’s demolition over its illegal construction on a service road, telling the builders to refund the registered buyers of the residential and commercial units within three months.
