Mega real estate scam: Bahria Town Karachi comes up with another scheme to fleece masses

KARACHI: Bahria Town Karachi (BTK) has come up with another scheme to mint even more money and avoid refunds to the allottees whose properties were cancelled i.e, never existed.

The allottees whose properties were cancelled have been issued demand notes for 35% development charges, and their properties have shifted in yet newly created precincts.

One of such affectees said that his property was in Precinct 26A, which was cancelled, and he was advised by staff that he could claim refund. “Now I have received a letter demanding 35% development charges and my property is now shifted to Precinct 62.”

According to Bahria Town official website there are 33 precincts in the project. A real estate dealer said overall there are 57 precincts if include all other projects.

“I don’t trust Bahria Town, I don’t trust Malik Riaz. They fleeced us for 4 years and then told us our properties were cancelled. Now they are demanding more money, only to tell us after 3 more years that we can claim 100% refund because our properties do not exist,” an affectee said.

The real estate agents and builders are convinced that not a single rupee should be paid to Bahria Town.

“We and our investors have suffered a lot by the hands of BTK and Malik Riaz. Now we are advising our customers and investors not to make any payments to these scammers,” a real estate agent dealing in BTK properties said.

The dealer said that all the allottees BTK and other projects would be slapped development charges, even those which Malik Riaz in his video mentioned would have to pay extra on one pretext or other.

“There was no mention of any development charges and yet these were imposed. The other projects’ allottees would face the same issues going forward.”

A real estate developer said Malik Riaz obtained the existing BTK land through false and criminal means. “I don’t know how many people would be deprived of their land and even lives as BTK has created several new precincts”.

Notorious real estate tycoon Malik Riaz has always been at center of controversy involving illegal land acquisitions and corruption on a massive scale.
Last year, Malik Riaz paid $250 million as part of a settlement with Britain’s money laundering investigating agency.

Bahria Town faces accusations of manipulating land records and forcibly evicting people from their villages on the city outskirts to make way for its projects.

Riaz, a major advertising spender, has an outsized influence over media houses, which block coverage critical of the real estate tycoon. He has also been known of rewarding top news anchors with cash, properties etc.

Given Malik Riaz’s influence and connections, the allottees and affectees have pinned their hopes on Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Bajwa for the justice.

  11. Don’t worry, Almighty Allah is everywhere n I m sure dt he wl definitely help all the victims later or sooner.

We should b thankful to Almighty Allah dt we aren,t debtor of Malik sb but he is. Be optimistic .

  27. InshaAllah Malik Riaz and his team will held accountable for even the loss of one single ruppe of people on the day of judgment and become the reason for people to get rewarded. This is the justice of Allah and one will see the result immidiately when the soul departs the body, as one strong verses of the holy Quran that angles will beat bad souls (ZALIMEEN) while taking their souls and punishment will immidiately start then and there. Remember the life is short, so be patience and calm.

  28. Allah ka azaab dekhey ga Jab logon ka huq Mara hai tu hisaab tu de ga, koi Malik Riaz ko ye message de do ke next life jo ke Barzakh ki zindagi hai aur bohat labma arsa ki zindagi hai, tu ye wahan kya kere ga, aur srif ye aik moqa hai Dunya main, jo theek kerna hai tu yehan kerna hai, bewaqoof hai Malik Riaz, gulti ker raha hai. Malik Riaz ko for an Allah se touba kerni chaie aur aik aik admi se hisaab clear kere jo jaiz hai werna tayaar ho jai zaberdust hisaab ke liye

  29. Effecte precient 25 A

    I would suggest that all effectees should presuure governmenet to nationalize this project in the interest of peoples of pakistan and handover it to DHA so all investor get their amount with the due profit.i am sure a mega economic activity will be started with this trasition and PTI govt will restrain its political position and nation will get rid off from this mafia

  32. It is really a big fraud. We have to unit and fight for our hard earn money. Refund must be @ usd. What about precint 32 D?

  33. Even I am facing the same. I have paid all dues and still they moved my plot to a new precint which doesn’t exist and wud be approximately 45km away from the gate . And now he is demanding development charges and threatening that the plot will get cancelled. It’s extremely disturbing. How can we trust and pay more on a plot which doesn’t exist and won’t be handed over or given possession soon .
    Extremely depressed
    I think we all should unite and file a case against him

  34. JI should go to court. All must united under the banner of JI
