Post Script: 2012: ISLAMABAD, June 9: ARSALAN SPEAKS OUT: In his statement, Dr Arsalan refuted in strongest terms any relationship, intimacy or acquaintance whatsoever with Malik Riaz, his daughter or son-in-law whose names were also not known to him and that he had never met them in relation to any business deal or for any purpose in or outside Pakistan. He said baseless, frivolous and unfounded allegations had been spread in the electronic and print media in the absence of any cogent and logical evidence acceptable under the law of evidence. Dr Arsalan cited a news item appeared on June 8 in an English Daily to prove that the stand taken against him by Malik Riaz had been denied by latter himself. Therefore, Malik Riaz was liable to be dealt with strictly for dragging Dr Arsalan in the court and maligning the august institution of judiciary, the statement said. Dr Arsalan argued that the statements of TV anchors brought to court record were nothing but “hearsay” as they were allegedly based on the statement of Malik Riaz and thus were inadmissible unless the property tycoon himself appeared before the court and produce admissible evidence. The claims of anchors like Kamran Khan and Hamid Mir and Group Editor of The News Shaheen Sehbai that some material had been shown to them by Malik Riaz suffered from serious contradictions, the statement said, adding that whatever Kamran Khan deposed before the court was an absolute contradiction to what he had said in his talk show on June 5. Similarly, Hamid Mir in his statement exonerated him (Dr Arsalan) by saying that the material shown to him was not worthy of acceptance. Thus these statements should be discarded straight away being inadmissible having absolutely no evidentiary value, Dr Arsalan said, adding that these statements were based on surmises and conjectures. Dr Arsalan also took pride for being the son of Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry whose integrity, he said, was beyond doubt. “Being a son of such a towering personality I have always been careful in my private and public life. I am a 32-year-old man; I earn my bread and butter through my own business and I submit my income tax returns regularly, which can be verified by any citizen of this country,” he said. The statement argued that the initial burden was upon Malik Riaz to establish the allegations along with explanations to the effect that what the motive was or object behind all the exercise which he wanted to achieve. It said if Malik Riaz had made investments for favouring him (Dr Arsalan) to achieve illegal ulterior motives, he owed an explanation to the court. Explaining his bona fide, Dr Arsalan said that in 2009 he had travelled on his own expense to London, along with his family, and hired a flat — a practice he repeated in 2010 and 2011 for which Rs4.5 million had been deposited through cheque No 1287353 of Standard Chartered Bank Lahore on Aug 15, 2011, by his cousin Muhammad Aamir Rana into Zaid Rehman’s account in Meezan Bank Gulberg branch in Lahore. Zaid Rehman was known to Dr Arsalan through Ahmed Khalil, a cousin of Zaid Rehman and employee of Bahria Town. Dr Arsalan said he did not know from whose credit card the rent of the flat which was around 3,200 pounds per week had been paid. Perhaps, he said, he had stayed for four weeks so that the total rent amounted to 10,000 pounds and when he reached London he had to sign an occupancy agreement by submitting the copy of his passport, therefore the formalities as per rules were completed, however the rent had already been paid.

ISLAMABAD (April 30 2010): Who compelled the Water and Power Development Authority (Wapda) during Musharraf regime to alter power supply agreement with Bahria Town, the only private sector housing scheme which is enjoying exemption from loadshedding? The agreement signed by Bahria Town and Islamabad Electric Supply Company (Iesco) on January 25, 2002, reveals that both parties agreed that (i) The grid station after completion will be handed over to Wapda/Iesco to maintenance, operation and other activities/extension, etc. Operation and maintenance after the construction of grid station will be done by Wapda/Iesco; (ii) after completion work, the sponsor will offer the same for final inspection by the CE design NTDC, Wapda through letter/completion report. Consequent to CE Design NTDC, Wapda letter of approval, final handing/taking over will take place at which date the grid station will be commissioned/energised and will become Wapda/Iesco property. The sponsors have applied for 10MW load with the commitment they will not ask for any load extension for next 10 years. However, after 10 years if they wish to extend the load further, they will be bound to comply with the then prevalent policy of Wapda/Iesco before any such extension is made.

In the end of the agreement, it was agreed that if the sponsor is found acting in contravention of the agreement or any of his dues adjusted or liable to be adjusted prejudicial to any of the clauses contained herein or any other instructions issued from time to time. Iesco reserves the right to revoke this agreement and is also authorised to impose penalty as deemed fit. However, on July 24, 2004 top brass of Wapda altered the agreement for ' personal gains' just after two years of its execution. Official document reveals that the authority decided to condone a couple of conditions and approved the connection at tariff C-3 in respect of Bahria Town Rawalpindi/Islamabad after energisation of grid station being constructed by Bahria Town management. The condition which were condoned were: (11.1) the ownership of grid station will remain with Iesco/Wapda; (11.2). The Iesco/Wapda will have the right to utilise the grid station for any future extension for providing new connections and; (12) Bahria Town management will construct grid station in accordance with the design already handed over to Bahria Town by Wapda and subsequently will maintain and operate. It is interesting to note that the Ministry of Water and Power is in the dark with regard to Bahria Town continued power facility. The spokesmen of both the Wapda and Bahria Town could not be reached for comments. REFERENCE: Copyright Business Recorder, 2010 Who compelled Wapda to alter pact with Bahria Town? MUSHTAQ GHUMMAN

ISLAMABAD (April 16 2010): While the entire country, from Khyber to Karachi, is crying owing to severe power crisis, Bahria Town, Rawalpindi, is the only privileged private housing scheme, which has been given exemption from load-shedding. According to the load-shedding schedules being implemented with full force, the citizens of Islamabad are facing a four-hour announced load-shedding, whereas Rawalpindi is experiencing an 8-hour announced load-shedding, besides numerous unannounced outages. In Islamabad, Red Zone comprising President House, Prime Minister House, Secretariat and diplomatic enclave are exempted from load-shedding due to security reasons. It is surprising that on one hand the people of far-flung areas are tasting load shedding up to 18 hours daily, but on the other an area (Bahria Town) which must be treated as at par with Rawalpindi zone, is enjoying 24-hour uninterrupted electricity whereas the adjacent towns and housing schemes are faced outages up to 8 hours, commented one citizen of Islamabad, Zafar Iqbal.

"It is unfair that the citizens of Islamabad and Rawalpindi are facing prolong unannounced load shedding," he added. Islamabad-based steel furnaces have already announced to lay off all its labour because of non-availability of power. Bahria Town has established its own grid station to supply power to its residents on a 24-hour basis, but it gets supply from the system of Pakistan Electric Power Company (Pepco). Spokesmen for Pepco and Bahria Town could not be reached for their comments. An official source told Business Recorder that the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) is also investigating tax leakage in private housing schemes/ societies, which procure electricity in bulk from public sector generation companies and supply to their consumers on self billing collection basis. An exercise is underway in the FRB to check the record of all the private housing schemes or societies to estimate the impact of tax leakage on revenue collection and future measures to stop this practice.

ISLAMABAD: Declaring all cases against him “false and concocted”, a three-member Supreme Court (SC) bench on Tuesday ordered the release of Malik Tabarik Hussain – the man held by police for the murder of Bahria Town security guard Faiz Ahmad – against a surety bond of Rs 500,000. The SC had ordered the arrest of Bahria Town Chairman Malik Riaz Hussain for Faiz’s murder on Monday, while conducting suo moto hearing on an appeal that appeared in newspapers. Tabarik was arrested by Karachi police from Islamabad and the court observed that law enforcement officials had not fulfilled the necessary legal requirements before arresting Hussain. The bench, consisting of Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, Justice Jawwad S Khawaja and Justice Ghulam Rabbani, however, directed Kohsar police to hold Hussain until he furnished the surety bond. Tabarik was brought to court by Karachi SSP (Investigation) Niaz Khoso and Sohrab Goth Investigation Officer Aneel Khushk.

Aneel informed the bench that Tabarik was charged under sections 324, 427 and 34 of the Pakistan Penal Code in an FIR registered at Sohrab Goth police station on October 16, 2009. The court, after examining the case records, maintained that the FIR was false and the entire case “concocted and designed”.

Air tickets: During the course of the hearing, it was also revealed that the complainant in these cases, Zaheer Ahmed, had provided air tickets to the police party that arrested and moved Tabarik to Karachi. It was also revealed that when police raided Tabarik’s house in Islamabad’s Sector E-7, they were accompanied by dozens of Frontier Constabulary personnel, and after the arrest, Tabarik was detained at FC offices for some time before being moved to Karachi. Tabarik told the court that his 14-year-old son was beaten up by police when he was arrested, and also accused the Investigation Officer Aneel Khushk of taking a Rolex wristwatch from him. The bench was, however, surprised to learn that another case was registered against Tabarik under sections 337, 148 and 149 of the PPC in Karachi in 2003, and that he had been declared an absconder.

At this, Justice Jawwad Khawaja noted that Tabarik had contested the February 2008 general elections as an independent candidate from NA-49 Islamabad and secured over 10,000 votes. He asked the police officials why Tabarik was not arrested earlier if he had been declared an absconder. Justice Khawaja also asked police representatives, as well as Sindh Additional Prosecutor General Saleem Akhtar, to explain why they had not intervened during the scrutiny of Tabarik’s nomination papers. Sardar Asmatullah Khan, counsel for Tabarik’s wife Anjum Riaz, told the court that Bahria Town chairman Malik Riaz Hussain was behind the “false cases” registered against his client’s husband.

Asmatullah said Tabarik planned to bring several people – who had been victimised by the Bahria Town chairman – to the Supreme Court on October 26. However, Malik Riaz, using his influence, had Tabarik booked and imprisoned. He alleged that Malik Riaz had illegally acquired thousands of kanals of land from the poor in the areas of Rawat and Sihala at throwaway prices, adding that Riaz had got registered false criminal cases registered against hundreds of such individuals at the Rawat, Sihala, Sadar Bairooni and Civil Lines police stations, just to get his hands on their land.

He maintained that Malik Riaz also wanted to acquire a piece of land owned by Tabarik, and had him arrested when the latter refused to sell. Asmatullah also informed the court that Malik Riaz had recently obtained a decree from an Islamabad civil judge, giving him ownership of over 7,000 kanals of land along the Murree Expressway, and then sold the land to the Defence Housing Authority for Rs 3 billion. After hearing the counsel’s arguments, the court had his contentions against Malik Riaz added to the case record and directed Tabarik to approach the Islamabad’s session judge, who is conducting an inquiry into the matter, for redress of his grievances. The court also ordered SSP Niaz Khoso to take action against the police officials responsible for Tabarak’s wrongful arrest and submit a report to the SC Registrar.
