The court remarked that the authority wanted to secure the accused persons again as it did in past. “We are rejecting this report. Now go, and call your DG KDA [Director General – Karachi Development Authority] to the court,” the court asked the official. The court remarked that all of them were in nexus for looting people. “Keep this in your mind, it is not that time. If this continues, you will also get caught,” the court added. The SHC directed to produce the DG KDA at 1:00 am and ordered to present the report in an appropriate procedure. INP/AK
