FIA starts probe into fake allotments by CDA


ISLAMABAD: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has initiated investigation into the matter of fake allotment of plots in Sector I14 by the Capital Development Authority’s (CDA) officials.The FIA has asked the CDA administration to give the original record of balloting of the said sector, the sources said. According to the documents available with the department concerned, the scandal surfaced when the affectees of Sector E12 were allotted plots through fraud in Sector I14 while the CDA board had banned the plot allotment to the affectees of Sector E12, unless they give the evidence of the possession of land.According to the documents, of the total 280 affectees from Sector E12, 106 fall in the category of ‘deserving’ while the remaining ones have been allotted lands on the fake names after getting financial benefit from the land mafia. On the directives of CDA Chairman Maroof Afzal, Member Estate and Administration Amir Ali Ahmed has completed the initial inquiry into the fake allotment case.While talking to the media personnel on Monday, Ahmad said that the details of the case had been sent to NAB. He said that the CDA chairman had given the approval for sending case to the NAB. “The genuine allotees should not worry about the situation because no genuine allotee would be deprived of land,” he said.Meanwhile, after an application from the affectees of Sector E12 was addressed to Federal Investigation Agency, an inquiry was initiated. An official of the FIA however stated that the same was pending due to the non-cooperative attitude of the CDA officials. It is interesting to note that a deputy director of the CDA’s Land and Rehabilitation Directorate who was allegedly the mastermind of the corruption saga refused to admit before the inquiry that the affectees list was faked. He also claimed that his signature on the list released earlier was also fake.
