KARACHI: Seven floors of the Nasla Tower have been demolished upon the orders by the Supreme Court (SC), Geo News reported Thursday.

The demolition of the building is underway and seven out of 15 floors have been razed with the help of heavy machinery.

The building had 11 residential floors and a four-story parking facility, out of which seven have been demolished.

According to the traffic police, the roads surrounding the building were blocked during the demolition process for safety purposes.

The SC had ordered the Karachi commissioner to double the number of labourers to dismantle the Nasla Tower — situated at Shahra-e-Faisal — within one week.

On November 26, 2021, Sindh Information Minister Saeed Ghani had demanded that those who were responsible for issuing the construction permits for the building should be held responsible and punished.

An investigation is underway into the illegal construction of the tower that was built in 2013.
