Chittagong Bureau :
High Court Division of the Supreme Court of Bangladesh  issued Rule Nishi upon six govt officials  of Chittagong  for alleged negligence towards  court order in ascertaining the demarcation of  Balumahal(sand lifting block ) in Karnaphuli River   under Noapara Union  of Raozan upazila .
The Rule Nishi issued to Secretary of LGRD Ministry , Deputy Commissioner of Chittagong, UNO of Raozan, Asstt. Commissioner of Land, Raozan and the Officer- In-Charge of Raozan thana.
The Rule Nishi was  issued following the allegations of  a leasee of the sand block (Block No.1) Haji Md. Alam of  Mowa Enterprise .
Our Raozan correspondent  said Mowa Enterprise took lease of the said sand block  of 40 acres of land  of Karnaphuli river under Noapara UP jurisdiction in 2016  but the  leasee  was resisted by a group of local influentials while lifting sand from river bed, he added.  .The leasee instantly informed the concerned authority in connection  and reguested them  to identify the specific areas of the leased sand block, sources said. .Despite the repeated request to the local administration to identify the  areas of sand lifting field , the leasee sent a legal notice to the concerned authority on October 24 last and lastly took shelter of Higher court on November 16 last.
 Following the appeal of the leasee HajiMd. Alam , High Court Division bench  comprising of Justice Moazzem Hossain and Justice Badruzzaman  issued Rule Nishi on six  govt  officials to answer it by next two weeks. Defying the higher court's order, concerned authority  again invited tenders for 98 sand lifting blocks including the Block No.1 ( previously leased) on March 1 last, leasee sources said.
Following the new tender for the said sand lifting block, the leasee Mowa Enterprise  filed a writ before the higher court.
Justice Md. Ashraful Islam and Justice Ashish Ranjan Das  bench sued the concerned officials of Chittagong  for negligence towards court's order earlier.In the meantime, the show cause notice already sent to the concerned officials , sources said.
While contacted, Asstt. Commissioner of Land Jonaid Kabir Sohag told this reporter that the leasee Haji Alam was  requested through phone and  official letter  several times to take possession of the  sand block but he avoided our request.
 He further said  reply to the  earlier  rule nishi aleady submitted  to   higher court and the  notice of writ petition  also received by him.
