The fresh move on part of the FIA has stirred panic amongst the CDA officials. The inquiry is being conducted on the directions of Interior Minister Ch Nisar Ali Khan soon after operation against dwellers of I-11 slum some months back. The FIA directed these officials to provide their written statements along with supporting documents regarding what efforts they made to de-possess the illegally-occupied land of CDA by the grabbers. It further said: “If no effort was made by these officials, they must explain the reasons.” The letter conveyed if some officials want to explain their position personally, the FIA would welcome them, adding if the reply is not received on the given date, it will be assumed that they have nothing to say in their defence.
