Turag River in Dhaka, Bangladesh almost grabbed.

The River Turag is getting drastically narrow near Ijtema Maidan in Tongi as land encroachers pile up sands indiscriminately on the river bank, gradually extending their greedy hands towards its bed.River encroacher back after 2years of hiberation; rampant onslaught narrows the river down a canal. The Turag rivers in Dhaka ,Bangladesh flowing along northern vicinity the capital is virtually disappearing from the map thanks to indiscriminate encroachment on the river for years. if the trend continues further the river would became history for future generation.After a break of two years after caretaker government, the encroachers are back to business. It seems now there are no authority to bar these people from encroaching the rivers around the capital. Different vested quaters including influentials locals, political leaders, housing estates, government officials, refuelling stations, private universities, sand traders and religious group have grabbed the banks of the Turag river over the years.
