Mohammad Umar, in his reply to the apex court, claimed the NOC dates back to 2003, when he was posted as a secretary at the union council office.
The NOC is a computerised copy whereas the union council had no computer systems and work was done manually, Umar elaborated.
Umar claimed the blueprint for the residence was also fake, saying the union council had asked Imran to submit a blueprint for a go-ahead but it was never submitted.
The Capital Development Authority (CDA) had declared the construction of the PTI chairman’s house illegal in a hearing on May 9, 2017.
The apex court had ordered CDA to verify the documents submitted by the PTI chairman.
A report was submitted by CDA in Supreme Court which stated that the authority has declared 122 buildings illegal which included Imran Khan’s Bani Gala residence.
It said that the construction was against the regulations of Islamabad Capital Territory.
In a hearing on Februrary 13, the Supreme Court summoned property documents of the Bani Gala residence of from the CDA.
Chief Justice Saqib Nisar warned that the residential structures in Bani Gala would be demolished if they are not as per the laws and regulations of CDA.
“Building regulations must be abided by,” the chief justice remarked during the hearing on illegal structures in Bani Gala.
Imran’s counsel Babar Awan maintained that CDA has no authority over private properties, adding that the constructions around Rawal Dam are illegal.
