People live in an unsafe three-storey building along the Buriganga in the capital’s Lalbagh area. Many buildings in the area were knocked down partially during eviction drives by the Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority in the last few months. But those are still occupied by residents. The photo was taken on Wednesday. Photo: Prabir Das
