The Islamabad Capital Territory Police has established an anti-land grabbing response unit to eliminate the ‘qabza mafia’ from the federal capital.
A committee headed by the additional superintendent of police, Farhat Abbas Kazmi, comprising four officers and 16 ‘jawans’ of Islamabad police, will initiate legal action against the land grabbers to provide relief to the victims.
The unit was set up on the special directions of the Inspector General of Police Islamabad, Qazi Jameel-ur-Rehman, to provide immediate help to the victims by taking prompt action against the culprits.
Islamabad police in a recent development have tightened the noose around the ‘land mafia’ and recently booked 31 influential land grabbers, acting on public complaints.
During the first phase, seven persons were sent to jail after registering separate cases against them in the relevant police stations. These people were involved in fraudulently selling government property to citizens through stamp paper.
Similarly, Islamabad police were also assisting the civil administration and Capital Development Authority (CDA) in a crackdown against land grabbers, following instructions of the IGP and chief commissioner Islamabad.
During the ongoing month, the authorities retrieved 2161 Kanal land worth over PKR 2 billion by conducting as many as 27 successful operations.
The land was being utilized illegally for domestic and commercial purposes.
More than 80 first information reports (FIRs) were registered, and 102 persons were booked during the operations.
