Cases against Bahria Town groundless: Aitzaz

Aitzaz Ahsan 1

Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan, counsel for Malik Riaz, has said the cases registered against Bahria Town are baseless.
Talking to reporters on Thursday, he said not a single inch of land had been occupied or acquired by Bahria Town through illegal means.
“No land owner has come up with any complaint against Bahria Town and there is no FIR lodged by any person against the administration,” he said, adding that charges had been framed on the statements of four or five revenue officers.
Aitzaz said investigations against Malik Riaz had been held 11 times in the past but no charge could be established.
He said Bahria Town land case could be transferred to NAB, adding that refusal by the anti-corruption department was tantamount to contempt of court.
Aitzaz said Bahria Town had earned international awards for its philanthropic projects. “Bahria Town has been defrauded and fake cases have been fabricated against it,” he said.
Earlier, a Lahore High Court bench of Justice Shahid Hameed and Justice Maqbool Ahmad heard the case. NAB prosecutor KK Agha said the case could be transferred to NAB.
