KARACHI: The assistant commissioner (AC) of Ferozabad wrote Monday a letter to three public utilities in the country asking them to suspend services to residents of the Nasla Tower, as instructed by the Supreme Court of Pakistan.
Deputy Commissioner Asma Batool has written a letter to the CEO of K-Electric, MD Karachi Water and Sewerage Board, MD Sui Southern Gas Company Limited, stating that the Sindhi Muslim Cooperative Housing Society did not. A-193 must deprive these public service agencies under the SC Regulation of September 22.
The letter also indicates that the demolition of the Nasla Tower will begin in accordance with SC regulations. “Therefore, it is again requested that the utility connections of the aforementioned building, such as water, electricity, and gas, be disconnected immediately before 27 October 2021 so that further action can be taken accordingly in this matter,” the letter says.
Assistant Commissioner (AC) Ferozabad handed the residents of the Nasla Tower on 16 October an eviction notice, which was also published in newspapers. The notice warned that the procedures required under Section 3 (i) of the Sindh Public Property (Intrusion Elimination) Act 2010 or “other enforcement measures” could be initiated against residents if they were unable to vacate the building within 15 days.
