Market on railway land in Comilla
According to railway sources, more than 200 shops were built up between the main line and loop line at Daulatganj Railway Station on the Laksham-Noakhali Rail route in the upazila. Seeking anonymity, some railway officials alleged that the AL leaders have made the market forcefully defying law. This was the rare incident in the history of railway in Bangladesh, they added. When this correspondent visited the area recently, he found that the place had been filled up with the sand from the Dakadia River. Daulatganj Railway Station Master Abdul Mannan Chowdhury said after filling up the land with the sand between the two lines,  train plying the route is seriously hampered. If the situation is going on, the total system might collapse any time, he added. He claimed that the AL leaders had set up the market with the help of Laksham municipality’s authorities and they did not discuss with the railway officials. Some locals seeking anonymity told the Dhaka Tribune that the AL leaders and their people had set up the market in the name of Hawkers’ Market. But they took Tk50,000 in advance for a shop. When contacted, Mayor Abul Khaer did not want to make any comment about the incident. He also asked this reporter at his home. Mostafizur Rahman, executive engineer of Comilla Railway, said he had informed the incident to the higher authority. “In my service life, I have never seen such heinous incident,” he said. When contacted, Railway Minister Mujibul Haque said: “No one can grab the railway land.” “Like another parts of the country, the land grabbers at Daulatganj Railway Station will be evicted soon,” he said.
