The government agency CDA works only in Islamabad, outside the federal capital. It has no jurisdiction.

The National University of Modern Languages ​​(NUML), an Islamabad-based university, has nothing to do with Imran Khan.

Director General of Building Control Section in CDA, Faisal Naeem Baig, said that the students’ hostel was illegally set up in a residential area.

“It is not a university hostel at all, it is inside a house, which is illegal,” Faisal Naeem Baig said.
