According to details Mayo Hospital administration informed DG ACE Brig. (R) Muhammad Aslam Ghumman that land mafia has illegally occupied valuable land of Mayo Hospital worth billion of rupees located at Napier Road, Thorton Road, Rattan Chand Road, Club Road and Katcha Napier Road which was transferred to different persons on fake Permanent Transfer Deed (PTD) illegally in connivance with the officials of Revenue and Settlement departments. DG ACE directed Additional Director General (ACE) Sheikh Muhammad Siddique to conduct a detailed enquiry and fix responsibility against the persons and officials involved. Additional DG ACE while submitting preliminary enquiry report to DG ACE disclosed that the officials of Revenue Department illegally transferred valuable land of Mayo Hospital in 1995 to Matrooka Waqaf Amlak Government of the Punjab on the basis of a bogus decision of Additional Deputy Commissioner. Later on, the land was transferred through bogus PTDs on October 03, 1996 in the name of Fazal Hussain, his two sons Asad Raza, Ejaz Raza and Dr. Zareena Raza, Iqbal Begum and her daughter Saira Begum, Syed Muhammad Iqbal Zaidi, Mrs. Noor Jehan Zaidi, Urooj Zainab and Uzma Sadat. The Revenue officials transferred the same land to Zulfiqar Ali Cheema of
Umar Block Allama Iqbal Town, Shoukat Ali of 21-Acre Scheme Samanamad and Waseem Ahmad Khann of Aaria Nagar Poonch Road Samanabad through registry which was an illegal act on the part of Revenue Department. It was disclosed during enquiry process that the illegal occupants have planned to sell the valuable land of Mayo Hospital in shape of plots of different sizes and they have also displayed the banners in this regard. DG ACE Muhammad Aslam Ghumman told that a detailed enquiry of illegal occupation of the land and its transfer through bogus PTDs would be conducted and no one will be spared including government officials and land mafia, found involved. He said that it is a common practice throughout the world that governments and well off persons donate their properties, lands and money for the construction of hospitals and heath centers but we, inspite of making efforts for the extension in existing Mayo Hospital are illegally occupying its property which are the signs of moral degradation, societal decadence and lust for money. All the characters involved in this heinous crime would be unveiled and a strict action will be taken against them, ensured DG ACE.
