The Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) has demolished illegal establishments on the railway’s land near the Banani Railway Station. DNCC Mayor Annisul Huq said the restaurant stood on railway’s land. “The city corporation or Rajuk did not permit commercial use of this land,” he told the media at the site. SM Rezaul Karim, railway’s division estate officer and executive magistrate, argued that the railway can use its land for any purpose. “The city corporation or Rajuk do not have the authority to conduct eviction drive here,” he claimed.
