CDA gets its land director back

ISLAMABAD - Bowing before political influence, the top management of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has restored the director land who was removed on Thursday for his alleged involvement in fake file plots scam, Pakistan Today has learnt.

The CDA’s director land , Fariduddin Mustafa, resumed his charge. The land director land who is a District Management Group (DMG) officer was repatriated to his mother organisation by the CDA chairman for his alleged involvement in fake file scam worth Rs 400 million.
However, within two days, the sacked officer managed to get his seat back. Sources in the CDA told Pakistan Today that a political personality resolved the issue between the land director and the CDA chairman.

Last month Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) sent 40 files of Sector F/11/2 and told the authority that all the files seeking compensation or alternative plots are fake as majority of applicants’ names did not even exist in the award list.

CDA Chairman Farkhand Iqbal constituted a facts-finding committee. The inquiry committee summoned the land director with all relevant records, but he didn’t turn up.

Later, the inquiry committee sent a reminder to him, but he again avoided to appear before the committee. Subsequently, the committee brought the matter into the notice of the CDA chairman who repatriated the services of the director to the Establishment Division. 

After showing the door to the director land, Chairman CDA, Farkahand Iqbal reportedly said that the director land was removed as despite reminder and his phone call he didn’t appear before the committee.

The chairman reportedly also said that it came to his notice that the director land was trying to declare the files legal.
