PHC asks for information on handing over of properties to Mardan city govt

PESHAWAR: The Peshawar High Court (PHC) has ordered the officials of the provincial government to furnish a report about measures taken by it for implementing the judgment wherein it had directed to hand over assets of the former Mardan district government to the city government.

A two-member bench consisting of Justice Lal Jan Khattak and Justice Abdul Shakoor also again sought details from the provincial government about the official vehicles in possession of deputy commissioners in the province and their entitlement thereto.

The bench issued the order while hearing a contempt petition filed by Mardan city mayor Himayatullah Mayar against the non-implementation of a judgment of the court delivered on March 17, 2022, wherein it had ordered the government to hand over assets of the former district governments to tehsil governments.

A few days ago, the court had ordered the government to hand over the relevant office to the city mayor, but that order had also not been implemented.
