The Supreme Court of Pakistan Thursday sought details from authorities within one month about all restaurants working in Magalla Hills National Park.

The top court also sought complete details and original records about the land lease agreement between Monal Restaurant and the Directorate of Remount Veterinary and Farms (RVM) in a week.

A three-member top court bench presided over by Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa heard the Monal Restaurant case.

The court stated that the Attorney General of Pakistan has admitted that the agreement of the RVM directorate with the Capital Development Authority (CDA) was not legal as it was signed without authorization by the federal government.

The court further said that the lawyer of Monal Restaurant stated that there were also more restaurants in the area of Margalla Hills National Park.

The court directed the authorities to tell the number of restaurants in the National Park area and details about the lease period and rent.

It said that the top court had been told that a delimitation of the national park was underway. It directed the CDA to submit the required details after completion of this process.

The court said that the National Park Ordinance should be available to the public for education and research purposes. It said that the respondents if want would submit suggestions for the protection of the national park. Further hearing of the case was then adjourned after the Eid.
