KARACHI: Sources privy to NPTV have repeatedly been insinuating that not only the sprawling Karachi Gymkhana is built on the Sindh Govt. land a faction is presently controlling all its affairs unbridled.

Iqbal Ahmed, a former president of KG who has moved to the UK for good, has claimed that a powerful group, headed by Fawad Malik as President, during 2016-17 had spent Rs. 80 million on the rooms project against the requirement of about Rs12.5 million as was asked for by the Project Committee, which was disbanded in 2015.

“In addition to this when the members (over 90) wanted to call a General Body Meeting to have the same audited under ‘special audit’ I was told that the said group having a majority in the Present Managing Committee of 2018 did not call the same  for reasons best known to them,” former KG president Iqbal Ahmed added. 

A case has been filed in the Sindh High Court which is pending. Many others pointed out that though KG was built in 1886 on Sindh Government’s land the relevant members of Sindh Government themselves had been excluded from KG. The said majority group is perpetuating their hold on the affairs by means of getting themselves elected via unfair polls. 

People contacted by NPTV have demanded that Supreme Court of Pakistan should take notice of the implication and instigate a comprehensive probe. They said that if proven that KG has encroached upon the Sindh Government’s land, it should be cleared-off and be used for public’s benefit. Some suggested the place could be turned into an educational institution while others opined that it could serve as an orphanage!
