Gulshan-Banani and Gulshan-Baridhara lakes of Dhaka (Bangladesh) have been encroached by real estate developers, retired government officials, a former UN official, a ward commissioner and even a sitting judge of the HC. Despite a HC stay order, the encroachers are filling up the Gulshan-Baridhara lake and also building boundary walls on it. The Rajdhani Unnayan Kartripakkha (Rajuk), who is the caretaker of the water bodies in the city, is sitting silently on this matter. According to the news source, the lake has been identified in the Dhaka Metropolitan Development Plan (DMDP) and the layout of the lake is in accordance with the Wetland Conservation Act.
