The Deputy Commissioner Karachi’s East District, Asif Jaan Siddiqui, on Saturday imposed section-144 around Karachi’s Nasla Tower, where demolition work is underway on Supreme Court’s order.
A notification was also issued in this connection.
As per the notification, the district administration has banned the gathering of four or more people around the Nasla Tower.
The move came after people staged a protest against the demolition of Nasla Tower, a residential building located in Sindhi Muslim Society, recently declared illegal by the Supreme Court.
The protestors tried to enter the building to halt the demolition process of the building. The police tried to stop the protestors and later restored to baton-charge and fired gas shells as the protestors kept on coming.
The deputy chairman ABAD and several other people reportedly got injured in the shelling.
