A certain influential quarter has walled off three families from rest of the neighbourhood over a land dispute at Sultanshi village in Habiganj. The families, surrounded by concrete walls on all sides, are barely making ends meet as they are almost cut off from the rest of the neighbourhood. According to locals, Ayat Ali and his three brothers have been living in their property for the last four decades. Locals added that after failing to grab the land, Shamsuddoha and Fahim built concrete walls around the residence of the three families, severely hampering their right of free movement. Another victim named Sohena Akter sought the support of local administration for rescuing them from this inhuman situation.
