A citizen moved the high court against charging of Rs30 for bike parking in DMC South, Karachi, against the fixed rates of Rs10.

At the outset of the hearing, CJ SHC remarked a plea against excessive parking fees was moved on May 13 and the contract was awarded on May 15. Everyone is making money, how much money was taken for awarding parking fee-contact, the top HC judge asked the parking officials.

The director charged parking DMC South in his response said he was recently appointed and not aware of the charged parking fee contract.
