KARACHI: The students and teachers of a private school protested on Friday near the debris of their school that was demolished by Karachi Development Authority Thursday evening

According to the school principal, Noreen, the authority did not give them any prior notice. She added they have all the valid documents of the school.

However, KDA officials said they did send notices to the school. They claimed the institute was being run on illegal property.

The demolished institute, Ideal Public School, was located near Korangi crossing.

In April, an over eight-decade-old school in Garden East, Jufel Hurst Government School, was razed to the ground.

Locals had said people belonging to the land mafia came to the area late at night and bulldozed the building.

Before it was demolished, over 1,000 children were getting an education here. These children belonged to different age groups as classes were held between primary and secondary levels.
