Illegal Sand Lifting

On 07.08.17 the Foundation filed a Public Interest Litigation (being writ petition no.11169 of 2017) which was in respect of environmental and ecological concerns. The illegal sand-lifting from the banks of the Rajshahi River was leading to soaring environmental concerns as the area around the river was being badly affected. Moreover, the people living in the vicinity showed concerns in regard to worsening ecological conditions as the fish and other wildlife surrounding the river were adversely affected due to such mindless activity. JWF’s public litigation lead the High Court to question the legality of the government's inaction and failure to take appropriate steps to stop lifting sand illegally from the bank of the Padma River in Godagari of Rajshahi. The Court directed to take immediate steps to stop illegal lifting of sand from various areas near the riverbanks of the Padma and to protect the areas from river erosion and damage of embankments at Godagari.
