IHC issues warrants for CDA chairman’s arrest

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday issued bailable arrest warrants for Capital Development Authority (CDA) of Engineer Farkhand Iqbal, director land and others in a contempt of court plea for disobeying the court orders in a land compensation case.
Justice Noorul Haq N Qureshi resumed hearing of the contempt plea filed by Asad Abbas through his lawyer, Raja Inam Ameen Minhas. During the course of hearing, the counsel for petitioner Raja Inam, told the bench that the CDA chief and other staff did not follow the direction of the court regarding the payment of compensation of 150 kanals of land occupied by the CDA and the management of authority was using delaying tactics instead of implementing the court orders. He contended that the authority flouted the court order. He said that on the last date of hearing, Barrister Masroor Shah, former legal adviser of the CDA, had asured the court that the director land would be present on the next hearing for explaining the implementation of the court but he was absent.
Commuters demand repair, improvement of Murree road, interchange loops: The residents and commuters of ever busy Murree Road have decried the apathy of the Punjab Highway Department (PHD) for neglecting the main artery between the twin cities. The road whose various sections are looked after by various agencies, has become a classic example of passing the buck to the other, without taking any responsibility.
While the lane-marking, done by spending millions by Rawalpindi’s civic authority has literally vanished, potholes have emerged, particularly near the city’s only median U-turn near Shamsabad.
The commuters while demanding more of such U-turns to ease flow of traffic demanded that the authorities focus on repairing and widening the one at Shamsabad.
With monsoon season around the corner, the motorists fear the number of potholes will only increase, and create more problems for the road users.
