Narail school building resorts to bamboo infrastructure
The skeletal frame of some parts of a school building in Lohagara upazila of Narail has been found to be made of bamboo sticks instead of iron rods. The bamboo skeleton was first sighted through a crack that developed on the pillar about a week ago. But students and teachers of Naogram Government Primary School have reported that an unidentified youth removed the bamboo skeleton from a rear pillar of the building after the class hours on March 2. The school’s head teacher Kazi Robiul Islam told the Dhaka Tribune: “We noticed the bamboo sticks in the pillar around a week ago when the cracks first appeared. On Saturday, we came to know that someone had removed the bamboo sticks.” [caption id="attachment_50633" align="aligncenter" width="800"]Several cracks along the walls have split wide open to reveal the bamboo skeletal structure Dhaka Tribune Several cracks along the walls have split wide open to reveal the bamboo skeletal structure Dhaka Tribune[/caption]

The school administration has informed the upazila education officer about the matter. “Classes will be cancelled if the condition of the building is deemed risky,” said Md Luthfur Rahman, an official of Lohagara upazila primary education office. The building that houses four classrooms was built under the supervision of the Local Government Engineering Department (LGED) in 2003. Officials at LGED's Lohagara office have so far failed to find out the name of the contractor who supervised the construction work. Osman Gani, an engineer of LGED's Lohagara office, said: “We have to examine the building to make sure whether other parts of the building were built using bamboo. We have notified the higher authorities about this.”
