194 acres of govt land reclaimed

CHATTOGRAM: The Chattogram district administration recovered 194 acres of government land remained under the clutch of encroachers in Sitakunda upazila on Wednesday.

Sitakunda upazila Assistant Commissioner (AC-Land) Md Ashraful Alam led the drive at Foujdarhat Link Road.

The hotels and restaurants set up illegally in the areas were also demolished during the drive.

AC Ashraful Alam said some encroachers illegally occupied the lands and set up some business firms there.

As the encroachers didn’t remove their establishment despite issuing notices earlier, they carried out the drive and demolished the structures, he said.

The market value of the recovered lands would be around Tk 1,000 crore, he added.
