KARACHI: The Sindh High Court on Tuesday summoned former captain Sarfaraz Ahmed to give his view on the cricket ground case before the court in personal capacity.
Sarfaraz Ahmed, the former Pakistan captain, has gotten himself in serious fire after being accused of constructing a cricket academy on illegal land. According to reports, the Sarfaraz Ahmed Cricket Academy is located on a property owned by the Government College of Women in Karachi’s North Nazimabad Block N.
The Sindh High Court has appointed a Nazir on the case who will be mandated to give a report on the case while looking into the records of the case. Both the parties of the case are directed to cooperate with the court appointed Nazir.
The SHC has adjourned the hearing for next three weeks.
Before the institution was built two years ago, residents in the region reported that the land had been utilised as a playground for several decades. The entire piece of property belongs to the college, according to the institution’s principal, and the cricket academy is built illegally on the site.
Meanwhile, the cricket academy claims that the college was planned to be built on a different piece of property before the plan was changed and they were ordered to shift to cover the area of the ground that was not covered.
They allege that the property on which the academy is located is not under the college’s control.
