Earlier, the executive magistrate ordered the demolition of two structures on the roof of the building.

After the operation, Tajina Sarwar told reporters: “This building has been approved in F-1 category. According to that category, the building can be used as an office.

The mobile court of Rajuk has come on the raid due to violation of the rules.”

He also said: "We are only sealing the restaurants."
