HYDERABAD: A joint investigation by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and Sindh government’s Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) discovered that 28 residential colonies in Tando Allahyar were built without official approval.
Additional Deputy Commissioner Abdul Hafeez Laghari informed the media that after a meeting of the officials from the three agencies, a list of the unapproved housing societies was compiled for action.
“These colonies didn’t obtain no-objection certificates or approvals from the relevant government departments. They also lack basic amenities, road and drainage infrastructure,” said Laghari. According to him, the investigation agencies were probing the complaints against lack of amenities and multiple allotment scams when they stumbled across the issue of illegally established housing colonies.
He said that the investigation officers visited all the marked colonies among others before completing their report.
