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.
