Islamabad High Court orders Navy Sailing Club to be sealed


The Islamabad High Court ordered on Thursday the Navy Sailing Club on the Rawal Lake to be sealed. It said the building was constructed illegally.

Chief Justice Athar Minallah expressed his extreme displeasure at the CDA and ordered the club to be sealed by the interior secretary through the CDA immediately.

He also summoned affidavits from the CDA chairman and board members.

Under what authority is the Pakistan Navy operating a commercial project, he demanded. The court ordered that it be satisfied on the matter at the next hearing.

If the club isn’t sealed by the hearing next week, the cabinet secretary has to appear in court. Justice Minallah also ordered the matter to be presented before the federal cabinet.
