Eviction drive: Slum dwellers block Dhaka-Mymensingh highway

UNB, Dhaka :

Slum dwellers on Monday staged demonstrations blocking Dhaka-Mymensingh highway against an eviction drive at Mohakhali without ensuring their rehabilitation.

Hundreds of slum dwellers blocked the highway in Amtoli area around 12pm as the Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) authorities started an eviction drive in  ‘Sattola’ slum of Mohakhali.

However, the drive was stopped in the face of the protests.

The slum dwellers, most of whom are the victims of river erosion, demanded rehabilitation first as they have no place to go.

Gulshan Division Deputy Commissioner (DC) Abdul Ahad said police have been deployed to clear the highway for traffic movement.
