Supreme Court has ordered the concerned authorities to return the land recovered from Mansha Bomb to the real owners of the lands by the evening and submit the report. A two-judge bench headed by CJP Nisar was hearing a Suo Motu case against land grabber Mansha Bomb at the Supreme Court’s Lahore Registry.
CJP censured the Punjab Police for not returning the recovered land to affectees and said,” Is this the police of Naya Pakistan which cannot control land grabber Mansha Bomb?”
Mansha Bomb allegedly had a favorable relationship with the political party in power in Punjab, provincial bureaucracy and had well-paid lawyers to cater legal troubles.
The CJP reprimanded the Deputy Inspector General (DIG) police, Waqqas Nazir saying, “The police of Naya Pakistan should be ashamed as they defend gangsters.” Following this, DIG informed the bench, “The police arrested Mansha Bomb and Khadim Hussain Rizvi. We are implementing court orders.”
The top judge then ordered to produce Mansha Bomb in the court, directing the land recovered be handed over to the concerned people. Mansha Bomb was arrested on October 15 from the Supreme Court as he appeared and surrendered after going in hiding previously.
Malik Mansha Khokhar, alias Mansha Bomb, is the leader of a land mafia operating in Johar Town, in Lahore. He had been wanted by the law enforcement agencies in over 70 cases of land encroachment, firing at the police, murder and attempted murder.
The first case of illegally and fraudulently taking possession of land was filed against him in 1982.
Mansha Bomb allegedly had a favorable relationship with the political party in power in Punjab, provincial bureaucracy and had well-paid lawyers to cater legal troubles. He reportedly had contacts in every relevant department to help him in troubled times.
He and his sons have been accused of illegally grabbing the lands in Lahore, but Mansha while surrendered, claimed that since his son had contested for the seat of UC chairman on Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) ticket, cases against him were just politically motivated and he was innocent.
