The drive evicted around 200 illegal establishments in the area
Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) has reclaimed a total of 30,000 square feet of area in the Gabtoli bus terminal and its adjoining areas in Dhaka.
A DNCC mobile court led by Executive Magistrate Sajid Anwar carried out the drive from 11am to 2:30pm on Sunday to reclaim its illegally occupied space.
The drive evicted around 200 illegal establishments, including some semi-concrete structures, sheds and shops.
The reclaimed space was then opened for public movement, said DNCC Public Relation Officer ASM Mamun.
DNCC Mayor Md Atiqul Islam visited the Gabtoli bus terminal along with local MP Aslamul Haque on August 28 when they expressed their dissatisfaction with the illegal establishments in and around the terminal.
The eviction drive followed instructions issued on Sunday.
