The SC had also ordered an inquiry against the Sindh Building Control Authority  (SBCA) and other officials who were involved in the illegal construction of the  Nasla Tower.

A three-judge SC bench, presided by the CJP, on June 16 2021 ordered the demolition of the 15-storey Nasla Tower for encroaching on the land meant for a service road.

The court had also directed the builders of Nasla Tower to refund the amount to the registered buyers of residential and commercial units within three months.
