RAHIM YAR KHAN-Land mafia is occupying the valuable land of Pakistan Railways (PR) in different areas of the city along railway track, PR Legal Advisor Hafiz Safdar said.

Safdar said that he had informed Railways Minister Saad Rafique about the serious issue. The minister ordered the PR Sukkur division officials to report him immediately. He said that PR Divisional Superintendent Sukkur division Ijaz Burrou also sent the PR officials for measurement of PR land from Nooraywali level crossing to Unilever level crossing.

He further said that land grabbers were not only possessing the valuable PR land but selling it to other people and constructing houses on it. He said that a grand operation will be started soon against grabbers. He said that the minister should visit Rahim Yar Khan to save the PR land. Later, Safdar showed in a press conference the pictures of possessed land and constructions on it.
