Urban Study Group (USG) formed a Human chain rally in front of the National Museum at Shahabag demanding to protect 100 years aged heritage architectures of Old Dhaka.
They demanded to stop demolishing the traditional 'Nilam Ghar' of Old Dhaka which govt. has leased to Bar Association for one year.
But Bar Association has planned to make a six storied building breaking the law and verdicts of high court as it is prohibited to destroy such heritage sites.
"Bar Association has already broke a huge portion of the traditional Nilam Ghar though we protested it and informed it to the proper authorities to take urgent initiatives but authorities didn’t take any proper action," main executive of USG, Taimur Rahman said.
