The officials taken into custody were identified as former directors of the KDA Mumtaz ul Haq, Ikhlaq Ahmed and Muneer Ahmed. The suspects are alleged of land encroachment and China-cutting in the megapolis.
NAB authorities are further interrogating the arrested officials.
The term China-cutting is very popular among real estate developers and agents who often refer to these lands as ‘China plots’ with each other.
China-cutting drew large public attention in recent years after Rangers mentioned this term in its reports on Karachi crime.
