A total of 62,537 acres of khas land remain under the clutches of grabbers across the country, according to a statistics placed by Land Minister Saifuzzaman Chowdhury in parliament.

He said the deputy commissioners of all districts were given directives to recover the lands by carrying out regular visits.

The plans include conducting eviction drives against the grabbers, amending the record of khas lands registered as the lands of individuals in RS, BS or City Records, preparing a list of grabbers, and taking measures to bring the lands under the occupation of the government through carrying out eviction drives in legal ways.
