Earlier, the TV channel reported that the Civil Aviation Authority continued to hold wedding functions at Karachi Club on Saturday—located on CAA’s land—against the Supreme Court orders given by the Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Gulzar Ahmed.

The CJP ordered the CAA director general to shut down the wedding halls and stop all marriage functions.

The CJP said that 200 acres of land were allotted to CAA for airports not for running marriage halls.
