November 28th, 2010 - 2:32 pm ICT by ANI  

Islamabad, Nov 28 (ANI): A Pakistani lawyer has moved the Lahore High Court against the allotment of land to US and NATO forces in Balochistan.

Advocate Illamud Din submitted before the court on Saturday that the government had handed over a big area to foreign forces for setting up an airbase, which was against the country’s sovereignty, the Daily Times reports.

The government was not authorised to hand over the country’s lands to foreigners, the petitioner said, adding that giving space to the US for its airbase would increase drone attacks on Pakistan territory.

He requested the court to declare this act of the government unconstitutional, and against the integrity of Pakistan. (ANI)
