A report, submitted before the High Court (HC) yesterday (Monday), alleged that 29.60 acres of land of the Dhaleshwari river have been grabbed by two private companies, a club and 46 individuals in a mouza in Singair upazila of Manikganj. Manikganj Power Generations Limited alone has occupied 11.30 acres, according to the report, said Advocate Manzill Murshid, counsel for the writ petitioner.

The Manikganj district administration submitted the report in line with the previous order of the HC. On October 23 last year, the HC bench asked the district administration to submit a survey report following a writ petition filed by the Human Rights and Peace for Bangladesh (HRPB). As per the report, most of the land grabbers have occupied land in the foreshore area of the river. It has been filled with sand and two structures have come up on the land.

After getting the report, Advocate Manzill Murshid, president of the HRPB, submitted it before the HC bench of Justice Moyeenul Islam Chowdhury and Justice Md Asharful Kamal for its order. He sought the HC's directive on the government to evict the land grabbers from the river. The bench fixed February 25 for hearing and passing order on the petition. The alleged grabbers of the Dhaleshwari river land are: Kalam Miah, Abed Ali, Shamsul Haque, Bachhiron, Ibrahim Miah, Nomaj Ali, Idris Ali, Achhia Khatun, Anwara Begum, Ali Akbar, Sahed Ali, Shamsuddin, Rafiqul Islam, Abdul Ali, Jinnat Ali, Abdul Jalil, Sundar Ali, Delwar Hossain and Ziauddin Ahmed (3.69 acres), Manikganj Power Generations Ltd, (11.30 acres), Julfikar (0.70acres), Jagaroni Chakra, (0.34 acres), Abdul Barek, Kamar Uddin, Abdul Khalek, Riaz Uddin and Abed Ali (0.74 acres), Abu Taher Mollah (0.62acres), Jaglu, Chhalim and Nizam Uddin (0.63 acres), Monirul Islam (1.13 acres), Abdul Majid Mollah, Abdul Haque and Mostak Ahmed (0.75 acres), Abdul Haque, Mostak Ahmed and Shakil Ahmed (1.98 acres), Idris Mollah (0.70 acres), Penta Properties Ltd, on its behalf Managing Director KM Akhtaruzzaman, and

Another report was prepared by the National River Protection Commission in line with the HC directive, which was also submitted before the same bench yesterday.

In its report, the National River Protection Commission made some recommendations, including removal of all illegal structures from the banks of the Turag, Buriganga, Shitalakhya, Balu and other rivers in and around the capital city Dhaka.

The government will demolish all illegal structures situated in and around the river banks within a month. After the illegal structures are demolished, eco-parks will be created and tree plantation carried out on the river banks to protect the environment and river.

The government can conduct a survey in line with the CS and RS to determine the original position of the rivers. All illegal structures should be demolished in the greater interest of the rivers and environment.
