SC summons CM Murad, former city nazim in Karachi water case

KARACHI: The Supreme Court on Monday summoned Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah and former city nazim Mustafa Kamal in Karachi drinking water case.

While hearing the case, Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar observed that that provision of clean drinking water and pollution free environment are the responsibilities of state and it should fulfill its duties in this regard.

Petitioner Shahab Usto informed the court that the citizens were being provided unfiltered and hazardous water. He added that people of Sindh's 29 districts were compelled to drink polluted water.

On this, the CJ remarked that air pollution is making life miserable for the masses and deadly diseases like cancer are spreading.

We will ask from the provincial chief executive what his administration is doing in this regard, he said adding that human lives are at stake and we cannot ignore this issue. The bench then  directed the chief minister to appear before the bench on Dec 06.

The bench also summoned Mustafa Kamal on Dec 05, during whose tenure the land reserved for Mehmoodabad water treatment plant was illegally allotted.
