HC bars to construct floor above New Market

The Dhaka South City Corporation’s (DSCC’s) decision to construct a floor above the single-storey extended part of the New Market was declared illegal by the High Court on Thursday.

Justice Sheikh Hassan Arif and Justice Razik-Al-Jalil’s bench delivered the verdict, affirming a rule the court issued last year on the issue.

Barrister Anik R Haque represented the writ petitioner while Deputy Attorney General Md Mokhlesur Rahman and barrister Sheikh Shafik Mahmud Puspa stood for the state and DSCC respectively.

Last year, New Market Traders’ Association President Dr Dewan Aminul Islam Shahin and Joint Secretary Sohel Bepari filed the writ petition.

After a primary hearing, the court on February 11 that year issued a rule staying DSCC’s decision to build an additional floor over the New Market.

In January last year, the DSCC decided to construct 178 shops on New Market’s roof using metal roofing. The decision was met by protests by several hundred traders.UNB
