The second phase of the eviction drive of the BIWTA has begun on the banks of Buriganga-Turag River. 

The eviction drive began on Tuesday morning from the Basila Bridge and from the Turag River in the capital.

So far, about 10 illegal structures have been broken. The drive will continue until all the illegal constructions on river banks will be eradicated.  

In the first phase, 1720 illegal structures occupying the river were evicted. But it is believed that it will take about two months to free the river from illegal possession around Dhaka.
