A packaging factory releasing liquid waste into Sreerampur Khal, locally known as Dhaleshwari Khal, in Dhamrai on the outskirts of the capital. Locals said the paper carton factory had been polluting the canal this way for a few years. In Savar and nearby areas, including Dhamrai, there is a high concentration of industrial plants, and most of the local water bodies are either polluted or exposed to pollution because of this. But little monitoring and enforcement of law is reported. The photo was taken on Monday. Photo: Aklakur Rahman Akash

UNPROTECTED AND NOT CARING ABOUT IT

A cleaning worker being hauled out of a manhole at Karwan Bazar in the capital yesterday. While there were reports of people suffering toxic inhalation, particularly workers, and sometimes, dying from it, this youth not only lacks gears to protect him from injuries, but he went down there bare-chested.
