District Administration evicted illegal settlements at Sugandha point in Cox’s Bazar beach on Monday, October 25, 2021 Dhaka Tribune

On October 17 last year, 52 illegal establishments were evicted

A team of the district administration evicted illegal establishments at Sugandha point in Cox’s Bazar beach on Monday afternoon.

The operation was led by Additional Deputy Commissioner Amin Al Parvez.

He said: “The occupiers fled during the drive. No one was detained.”

Occupiers are again setting up illegal settlements on the north side of Sugandha point.

According to local residents, a person named Haji Jasim Uddin Siddiqui was responsible for the illegal occupation.

His syndicate has about 40 more people. With more than 50 workers, they built the installation overnight with polythene and bamboo. 

A signboard was also hung in the name of the court. The occupiers have swindled people out of crores of taka by promising to give them shops.

On October 17, 2020, as many as 52 illegal establishments were evicted at Sugandha point by order of the High Court.

At least 10 people, including policemen and journalists, were injured in clashes with the occupiers during a joint operation by the Cox's Bazar Development Authority (CBDA) and the district administration.

The CBDA filed a case against the occupants in this incident. At the end of the year, the identified cycle started building shops in the same place again.

The authorities also issued a notice on April 10, 2018, on the removal of the illegal installations.

Subsequently, when the traders filed a writ petition, the High Court issued a rule on April 16, 2018, and stayed the eviction. 

The Ministry of Land and the state appealed to the Appellate Division against the stay order. Later, on October 1 last year, the Appellate Division rejected the High Court's stay order on the eviction of the 52 structures.

The Virtual Appeal Bench headed by the chief justice passed the order on the plea of the Ministry of Land and the state.

As a result, the district administration and CDA jointly evicted these illegal establishments.
