“If the cricket ground falls within the limits of Shakarparian National Park, then it cannot be constructed there,” Justice Nisar remarked

A three-member SC bench headed by Justice Nisar was hearing a petition filed by former secretary Roedad Khan, who has pleaded that a project to construct a cricket ground in Shakarparian is anti-environment.

The petitioner, who is also the chairman of the Margalla Hills Society,  told the court, “Influential people have been given the authority to chop down trees to construct the stadium.”
