Karachi: Baghicha case reopened
KARACHI: The Sindh government has ordered the Enquiries & Anti-corruption Establishment (E&AE) to reinvestigate the case regarding the illegal allotment of 8.3 acres of the Gutter Baghicha amenity land to private factory owners by KMC officer Shafi Ansari and others.
Sindh Chief Secretary Fazlur Rehman passed this order on Feb 4 on the representation made by chairman of Karachi NGOs Nisar Hussain Baloch, in which he drew the attention of the chief secretary towards ACE FIR No 512000 registered under Sections 420, 468, 471 and 34 of the PPC read with Section 5(2) of Act-II, 1947.
The order, sent to the chairman of the E&AE, directed him to reinvestigate the case and submit the report for perusal at the earliest.
In his representation to the chief secretary, Mr Baloch claimed that ACE Inspector Qazi Ashfaq had prepared a report contrary to the facts to misguide high officials to quash the FIR. Talking to Dawn, Mr Baloch said he had all documented proof to prove that the record was tampered to dish out the precious land of the Baghicha and how, through distortion of facts, the FIR was quashed.
