KARACHI: Bahria Town management has asked the Supreme Court for complete legal immunity in return of its new offer of Rs.485 billion.
The new proposal was submitted in the apex court today by the legal management.’
“After finalisation of the proposal, all criminal and civil liabilities against its directors (past and present), shareholders, management of BTPL and/or its associated entities shall cease to exist,” read the proposal.
On May 4, 2018 the court ruled that the Malir Development Authority illegally granted land to Bahria Town.
The Sindh government had allotted the land to MDA for building a housing scheme. The MDA, however, exchanged the land with Bahria Town, the court said. Bahria Town was even barred from selling any plot or apartment in the housing scheme. The top court has been hearing a case on the implementation of its verdict.
The Bahria Town has made several proposals to get the land transferred to it. The court has rejected all the proposals so far.
