Unauthorized sculptures of Bangabandhu, Mohiuddin demolished in Chittagong
A mobile court of Chittagong City Corporation has allegedly demolished three under-construction sculptures, including one of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, at the entrance of Jahur Hawkers Market in the city on Tuesday. However, the mobile court claims that there were no statues but the market's shop owners insist otherwise. Abul Quasem, the secretary of the market, alleged that the mobile court demolished sculptures of Bangabandhu, Bangladesh's first labour minister Jahur Ahmed Chowdhury, and former city mayor ABM Mohiuddin Chowdhury. Magistrates Achhiya Akhter and Jahanara Ferdous, who operated the mobile court, said that there was no such sculpture in the area. Jahanara said that no permission was obtained for constructing the slab. “The slab was being put up obstructing a drain in the area. Therefore the unauthorized slab was demolished," she said. "There was no sculpture." Leaders of Jahur Hawkers Market said construction of the sculptures had started back on December 26 last year. Quasem said that they would lodge a complaint with the prime minister in this regard.
