KARACHI: The Supreme Court of Pakistan has directed the owners of the Nasla Tower to refund its residents within three months.

In a written order, the apex court ruled: “The owners of the tower shall refund price of shops/residential units and other areas sold by them in any form to the registered owners within a period of three months. In case of delay, the claimants can claim mark-up/profit at the bank rate together with damages.”
