The Lahore Development Authority (LDA) has been found to have corrupted the ACE to the tune of Rs. 1.4 million, as per media reports. Due to the existence of illegitimate papers, the allocation of 27 plots in Johar town, Lahore, has been suspended.

LDA personnel engaged in these illegal practices have become the target of legal action by ACE. Shahid Munir used his connections to get these plots using fake papers and then transferred them to Zaheer Ahmed.

Significant corruption and irregularities were made public in a prior incident involving the sale of pricey property owned by the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) in Baldia West, Karachi.

A “fake challan” transaction was used to sell a 4-acre parcel of property. In Gulshan-e-Zia, Orangi, further anomalies were found in the selling of KMC property.

This bogus challan was used to sell this four-acre plot of land.

According to reports, from 2004 to 2016, this particular piece of land was used to dispose of animal excrement. The management of the site was given to the KMC Baldia West department in 2002, following the creation of the Town Municipal system.

The KMC land has a market worth of about Rs. 1 billion, but it was allegedly sold for a considerable discount using fake challans.
