Passenger shade demolished
A passenger shade alongside Boda-Debigonj road in Shakowa Bus Stand area under Boda upazila of Panchagarh district was demolished allegedly by a local influential man, ignoring people's plea. Locals said Md Bulbul alias Bulbul Master of the area, bulldozed the shade claiming ownership of the land to build a market. Earlier, locals submitted a petition to Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Zohirul Islam in this regard on Saturday but to no effect. However, denying receiving the written complaint, the UNO said he was informed about the matter orally and referred it to secretary of Panchagarh Zila Parishad as it was the proper authority. Contacted, Secretary of the zila parishad Mahbub Ul Alam said their engineers visited the spot and were preparing to file a case. The shade was built in 1985.
