ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court has rejected the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government’s appeal against the Peshawar High Court in the matter of acquiring land for Bacha Khan University.
A two-member bench headed by Justice Mansoor Ali Shah conducted the hearing. During the hearing, Justice Qazi Amin said that the constitution prohibits all forms of exploitation. How far has real estate gone in 10 years?
Justice Mansoor Ali Shah said that land was acquired for the university 10 years ago. The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government’s lawyer said that if the appeal was rejected, an additional Rs 1.5 billion would have to be paid. After the amendment in the law of the provincial government, the markup on the original amount has been abolished.
Justice Mansoor Ali Shah remarked that the Supreme Court should not count money. Make payments to victims with markup.
