Chattogram City Corporation (CCC) has demolished around 12 public sitting arrangements at Biplob Uddyan near 2 number gate of the port city yesterday.
A mobile court led by Mofidul Alam, chief revenue officer of CCC, knocked down the concrete structures that were becoming a headache for pedestrians.
Mofidul Alam told The Daily Star they acted after receiving complaints from locals.
"When we inspected the spot, we found that several shop owners had built the sitting spots illegally," he added.
"We have demolished the spot and issued an ultimatum to remove other non-approved structures within a week," he said.
