DSCC continues drive to remove Bangabazar's makeshift shops

DHAKA, April 16, 2024 (BSS) - Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) continued

its drive to remove the makeshift shops at the site of Bangabazar Shopping
Complex for the second consecutive day today.

As the DSCC has planned to construct a shopping complex at Bangabazar, it
started eviction drive on Monday and about one-third of the makeshift shops
were dismantled using excavators in the market which was destroyed in a
massive fire on April 4 last year.

Earlier, DSCC Mayor Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh announced that the corporation
would start construction work of the complex after Eid-ul-Fitr.
DSCC Public Relations Officer and Spokesperson Abu Nasher said that the
corporation gave notice to all shop owners before Eid for the construction of
the market.

He hoped that the eviction drive will be completed by tomorrow.

The shop owners requested the DSCC authorities to take necessary steps to
complete the construction of the market on the site quickly for the sake of
the affected businesspeople.
