Land mafia has become active along the Sunhera Beach, which is a public beach, about 30 km from Karachi. It is not only a beach but also a harbour for the Manjar Goth, Deh Mann, Deh Allah Bano and Mubarak Village. Local fishermen expressed their concern over land mafia’s activities along the Sunhera beach. According to fishermen, land mafia grabbed a vast area where they illegally erected gates and constructed walls.

The land mafia don’s have stationed private guards along the beach and these guards are charging fee from the beach-goers and local fishermen. According to revenue laws, beach is a public place, which cannot be allotted to any person for personal use or commercial purpose. Sindh government should start a probe into the matter unless some of their own people are involved.
