Boro crops on 1,000 hectares of land facing submersion in Sunamganj
Boro crops on 1,000 hectares of land in Sunamganj are under threat of being destroyed due to some fishermen allegedly breaching Tanguar Haor’s Nautana embankment that protected the crops. On Thursday morning, a group of fishermen allegedly destroyed the Nautana embankment to catch fish with their Bandaria nets. Due to this, crops from Tanguar Haor’s Eraliakona, Goniakuri, Lamargul, Tanergul, Nandia, Majergul, Tungamara, Sunadubi, Golgolia and Shamsagar are under threat of being destroyed. Treasurer of the local haor management sub-committee Khashrul Alam filed a case at the Tahirpur police station in this regard. He named eight people as the accused in the case file along 90 others who are still unidentified. The police have held one Anwar Hossain, 28, in this regard. Sripur (North) UP member Sajinur Mia said: “Some miscreants destroyed the Nautana embankment on Thursday. 50% of the Boro crops in the haor are under threat of submersion right now.” The embankment was built by a sub-committee, which consists of locals that work with the haor management. Tahirpur upazila agricultural officer Md Abdus Salam said: “Although most people have harvested their crops, some 1,500 farmers’ 1,000 hectares of land that still have crops is still under threat.” Sunamganj Water Development Board executive engineer Md Abu Bakar Siddique Bhuiyan said: “The embankment was not built by the Bangladesh Water Development Board. All the embankments built by our organization are still intact.” Tahirpur police station OC Nandan Kanti Dhar said: “Khashrul Alam has filed a case in this regard. We have already detained one person in relation to the incident.
