Court orders reopening of Karachi’s adventure park
KARACHI: The Sindh High Court has ordered the metropolitan authorities to reopen the ‘Go Aish’ adventure park after the park administration cleared outstanding bills.
The park has been closed since May 2016 over non-payment of bills. It was established next to Safari Park in March 2007.
The orders for reopening of the park were issued by a two-judge bench of the SHC, headed by Justice Nadeem Akhtar, while hearing the petition filed by the park management.
The adventure park is a privately-run recreational facility of Safari Park.
The petitioner was directed to clear the dues, amounting to Rs1.8 million within three days, said Bhutta, adding that a request was made to the KMC administrator to allow more time to make the payment.
After hearing arguments from the lawyers representing both the parties, the bench said in its order, ““In view of the above, the impugned order is set aside by directing the respondents to remove their locks forthwith from the subject premises and restore the possession thereof to the petitioner.”
