The Supreme Court has ordered to bulldoze the Nasla Tower within a week, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

A Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Gulzar Ahmad heard the Tower Nasla case at Karachi Registry on Monday.

Issuing the order to demolish the Nasla Tower, the apex court showed its annoyance over the non-compliance of its earlier order regarding the bulldozing of the residential complex. The court asked the authorities to answer it why the tower had not been bulldozed as yet. The court firmly held that no favour would be granted in this regard. 

Chief Justice of Pakistan Gulzar Ahmad asked the Karachi commissioner to get ready to remove the debris of the soon-to-be-demolished building. He also directed him to pay compensation to the residents of the tower. 

The court summoned report within a week.
