Meanwhile, the CDA’s enforcement division carried out an operation in sector F-13, where “an unlawful plaza with 30 stores and a new illegal under-construction market were demolished with heavy gear,” according to a news statement.

A total of four kanals of government land were also recovered. The CDA purchased sector F-13 in 2008, but has failed to compensate inhabitants in order to take total control of the area. The press statement stated that “protection of government lands is our main priority,” and that the CDA has been undertaking operations against encroachments and unlawful structures in the Federal Capital, resulting in the recovery of billions of rupees in government land.
