The bench remarked that “Former Karachi University Vice Chancellor Zafar Saeed purchased this land for research purpose.”

“He had filed a petition against its illegal occupation.”

Moroever He added that, “Years have passed since then and even he got retired from the service.”

Furthermore Justice Hasan Azhar Rizvi said they want to end the illegal occupation of the land and fulfil the retired professor’s desire to utilize it for the research purpose.

A counsel of the BoR in his arguments said that the apex court has given a stay order on the matter and they could not allow any alternative land in this regard. The court directed him to submit the revenue authority’s report and apex court orders.
