ISLAMABAD : Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan Monday ordered immediate action against officials of Capital Development Authority (CDA) for becoming facilitators in setting up of illegal slums in Islamabad.

“Building of illegal slums in Islamabad is not possible without

the connivance of CDA personnel,” he said during a briefing held on the continued operation of CDA against illegal settlements in the capital. The minister directed the chairman CDA for immediate action against officials of the authority that allowed the land grabbers to grow as the illegal settlements were made.

Chaudhry Nisar made it a condition that ICT police and administration would help the CDA in future operations against illegal slum dwellings when action would be taken against black sheep in the authority.

The minister also instructed the chairman CDA for setting up of committee for end of corruption in the authority.
