"We have evicted the illegal establishments and warned their owners," he added.

Both city corporations in Dhaka launched the combing operation together, in order to destroy Aedes larvae in different areas of the capital, from August 20 in a bid to cut down the spread of dengue virus.

Dengue, a mosquito borne virus, spreads among human populations through its carrier, the Aedes mosquito.
