While issuing the order, the court expelled SBCA Director (research) Mushtaq Soomro from the courtroom.

Furthermore, the top court has also ordered the demolition of buildings constructed on the Railways land within a week, as SC heard the case pertaining to the restoration of the Karachi Circular Railway (KCR) system.

Mayor Karachi Waseem Akhtar, the commissioner Karachi, the secretary Railways and the advocate general Sindh were also present for the hearing.

It was last year in November when SC ordered the authorities to take steps to immediately revive the Karachi Circular Railway project and clear all encroachments on Railways land in the metropolis.
