Five lakh acres of forest land go to grabbers

Five lakh acres of forest land in 27 districts, particularly in Tangail, Gazipur, and Mymensingh have gone under illegal possession as the forest department has failed to issue gazette notifications relating to the land during the last 82 years, according to sources in the land ministry, writes Deepak Acharjee. The paper alleges that five lakh acres of land, 15,000 acres worth Tk800 crore has been grabbed in Dhaka, Tangail, Gazipur and Mymensingh by some big developers.
