The order clears the way for the government to evict unauthorized business structures

The Appellate Division on Thursday overturned the High Court stay order over the eviction of 52 establishments in Cox’s Bazar.

The order clears the way for the government to evict unauthorized business structures from the district’s Sugandha point in Kalatali.

A four-member Appellate Division bench headed by the Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain pronounced the decision after virtually hearing an appeal filed by the Land Ministry and the government challenging the High Court rule and order over the matter. 

Advocate Manzil Murshid and Deputy Attorney General Biswajit Debnath represented the Land Ministry and the state while Barrister AM Mahbub Uddin Khokon stood for the writ petitioners. 

According to Advocate Manzil Murshid, the Cox’s Bazar development authority served an eviction notice on the owners of the illegal establishment at Sugandha point on April 10, 2018. 

Subsequently the owners of the 52 illegal establishments filed a writ petition with the High Court challenging the eviction notice. 

In the same year on April 16, the High Court issued a stay order on the eviction process and also issued a rule questioning the eviction notice. 

Following this development, the Land Ministry and the government filed an appeal before the Supreme Court challenging the High Court order.
