Film actor Shakib Khan has been fined Tk 10 lakh for constructing his house in Dhaka’s Niketon area violating the Rajuk-approved design.
The High Court yesterday directed two Rajuk officials to surrender before a lower court in six weeks in connection with a case filed for forgery over the design of FR Tower.
The Institute of Architects Bangladesh (IAB) stated in a press conference on April 8 that its members have discovered around 2,000 incidents in which signatures of architects were forged.
Violating the then building rules, Rajuk in December 1996 approved an 18-storey high-rise in Banani, where the FR Tower stands today.
This newspaper on March 24 reported how Rajuk is trying to change land allotted for educational institutions and environmental preservation in the Purbachal Project into commercial and business plots.
A multistoried building in Dhaka’s Monipuripara, that houses a ready-made garment factory, is evacuated over allegations of tilting.
