Nasla Tower gas connections cut off by SSGC
According to media reports, the Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) disconnected utility connections for Nasla Tower residents on Tuesday, following Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP) directives to municipal officials to raze the unlawful construction within a week.
In the presence of Assistance Commissioner Ferozabad, SSGC alone disconnected over 100 gas utility connections today.
According to the most recent report, the utility connections, including water, electricity, and gas, are being removed from the building in accordance with the Karachi Commissioner’s directions.
Commissioner Karachi Muhammad Iqbal Memon has called an urgent meeting to consider all options for complying with the apex court’s directions.
The city commissioner has also written to the Frontier Works Organization (FWO) today, requesting assistance in demolishing the unlawful Nasla Tower in accordance with the highest court rulings, which instructed the operation to be completed within a week.
Memon has asked FWO authorities to assess the location of the unlawful tower in order to evaluate possibilities for razing it in accordance with court instructions, according to the letter he sent today.
The commissioner has urged that FWO finish its survey report within two days so that it can proceed in accordance with Supreme Court directions.
