Save Labandha river from pollution
Bangladesh Environmental Lawyers Association (Bela) yesterday asked the government to take necessary measures to save Labandha river in Gazipur from pollution and encroachment.
A legal notice was sent by the organisation through S Hasanul Banna, their lawyer, to 24 respondents including the government officials, illegal occupants and polluters.
The 23km waterbody is endangered due to encroachment and pollution. Over a hundred factories have been set up on its banks. Bela asked the government to identify all the encroachers and demanded strict legal action against them.
