ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday ordered authorities to block the Monal restaurant on the top of Islamabad’s hill and take over the Navy Golf Course before closing hours today.

The order was issued during a hearing chaired by IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah in a case related to the encroachment of Margalla Hills National Park.

The hearing was attended by the Ministers of Defense and Home Affairs, the Chairman of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) and the Deputy Attorney General (AAG).

Judge Minara said land in the national park was owned by the state and no commercial activities could take place there. “No one can cut the grass on this land. This land belongs to the state.”
