Executive Magistrates – ASM Safiul Azam and Tajwar Akram Sakapi Ibn Sajjad
led the eviction drive, said a press release.
Atiqul told reporters that the road had been remained in the grip of
illegal occupants since independence of the country.
“Many attempts were taken to make the road free from illegal occupants,
but all the efforts went into vain,” he said.
Warning the occupants, the mayor said, “Those who are occupying the places
illegally, please move from here. I will not give you any kind of notice. I
will go and demolish all the illegal structures.”
