NAB seeks report from KWSB over action against illegal hydrants.

KARACHI -- The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) officials on Friday met the chairman Karachi Water and Sewerage Board Asadullah Khan and sought report regarding actions taken by the KWSB against illegal hydrants operating in the city.

The NAB team asked the KWSB to clarify its position over illegal hydrants operating citywide.

The KWSB chief asked the water board officers to also mention in the report if the law enforcement personnel don't cooperate with the Karachi Water and Sewerage Board in action against illegal hydrants.

The NAB also directed the top officer to collect information about all illegal hydrants in the city. The KWSB will also issue clearance certificate to respective areas where illegal hydrants would cease to operate.

The report regarding action against hydrants would be sent to the NAB within seven days.

On March 3, the Sindh High Court had ordered action against a sessions' judge for allowing an illegal hydrant to operate in a Malir neighbourhood.

Justice Salahuddin Panhwar of the high court had given the order while hearing a petition against the illegal hydrant. He observed that the judge went beyond his jurisdiction by passing such an order.

The Karachi and Water Sewerage Board (KWSB) had sealed the hydrant with help of the district administration for being illegal.
