Pak SC irked by construction on Hindu Gymkhana premises

A three-judge bench headed by Justice Gulzar Ahmed also questioned the construction of new Sindh Assembly building on the premises of the historic building of the provincial Assembly.

Hearing a petition filed by Shree Ratneshwar Mahadev Welfare in 2014 seeking ban on construction on the premises of Hindu Gymkhana, a heritage building (where Napa is located), the bench, comprising Justices Mushir Alam and Sajjad Ali Shah, expressed displeasure with the provincial officials and said how constructions could be allowed on the premises of a heritage building.

Justice Ahmed warned that the time would come when such constructions on the premises of Hindu Gymkhana would be demolished and directed the Chief Secretary and the Secretary of Culture to turn up along with their replies at the next hearing.
