There are over 600 cases related to the Capital Development Authority (CDA) pending with the Islamabad High Court (IHC) and the district court, many alleging corruption and misappropriation. The Capital Development Authority’s (CDA) failure to address these allegations has led to the setting up of a court-appointed probe team. The commission will be headed by former Supreme Court judge Sardar Raza Khan. Two retired sessions’ judges, Sakhi Muhammad Kahut and Baqir Ali Rana, are also part of the commission. IHC Additional Registrar Abdul Qadir Memon will be the focal person for coordination and facilitation. Some of the pending cases include cases related to the allotment of prime land, illegal construction and tendering and large-scale allocation of contracts without competitive tendering processes.
