Security risk: Katchi abadis in Karachi termed ‘dangerous’

KARACHI: Investigation agencies on Monday termed katchi abadis (illegal makeshift settlements) in the city as permanent danger, ARY News reported.

The authorities sprang into action after discovery of a tunnel in a house, situated in a locality next to Central Jail which was being dug up by terrorists to make their way into the prison and free ‘dangerous terrorists’ incarcerated there.

It is learnt that Land Department made no planning to prevent mushrooming growth of illegal settlements and even officials within the department got the lands encroached for monetary purposes.

Many important installations including Karachi airport, Mehran Base and PAF base are also even surrounded by katchi abadis.
