Illegal Kitchen Market!

A train bound for Narayanganj passes through a kitchen market, illegally set up along the Dhaka-Narayanganj rail line, in the city’s Shyampur area. Locals said the market was built along a one-kilometre stretch of the track about a month ago after the railway authorities had evicted vendors from another nearby kitchen market in Jurain. Such disregard for safety can lead to fatal accidents. The photo was taken on Wednesday. Photo: Anisur Rahman

Risky Buildings

People are living in these partially-demolished buildings on Beribadh Road in the capital’s Islambagh, putting their lives at risk. Parts of these houses along the Buriganga were knocked down by Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority during an eviction drive around eight months ago. The photo was taken earlier this week.
