CJP takes notice, seeks impact report


ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Tassaduq Hussain Jillani has taken suo motu notice of the possible damage to a Hindu temple due to the construction of an underpass in Clifton, Karachi. The chief justice has sought a detailed reply from Sindh chief secretary within two weeks in this regard. A few days back, the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) had sought the intervention of the CJP to protect the old Hindu temple in Karachi that is threatened by the construction of underpasses and flyovers in Clifton. In a letter sent to the chief justice, HRCP Chairperson Zohra Yousaf noted that business interests in complicity with officials of the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) had started construction of multiple flyovers and underpasses around the Clifton seafront without any prior notice.
