A single-judge SHC bench led by Justice Zulfiqar Ahmad Khan also issued notices to the DHA, Cantonment Board Clifton, Cantonment Board Faisal, Cantonment Board Malir, Karachi Cantonment Board, and others on an application seeking contempt proceedings against them for failing to comply with the court’s earlier order restraining them from using the land sanctioned as public spaces for any commercial or gainful purposes, as well as not to create a third-party interest.
It also ordered the DHA to submit information about land authorised for other projects, as well as the Civil Aviation Authority and the Port Qasim Authority to share information about commercial properties and reclaimed land, respectively.

According to the article, the official assignee had sent notifications to the DHA and other defendants, instructing them to deliver the relevant records and papers, as well as establish focal persons to ensure compliance within a specified time frame.
The plaintiffs had given a copy of the master plan from 1973 detailing the initial allotment of the land to DHA, according to the report, and it appeared that DHA had been purposely evading producing the documents based on the posture taken by the DHA’s law officer.
The official assignee told the DHA legal officer that determining the dimensions of reclaimed land was impossible without a record of the first allotment.
