A mobile court led by Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) on Sunday inspected the under-construction building of Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD) and found presence of larvae of Aedes mosquitoes, in view of which, a twenty thousand taka fine was imposed.

In this connection, CPD issued a statement on Monday explaining its regret over the incident.

The under-construction building site, where the larvae was detected, has not been under CPD’s direct supervision for the past three years, the global think tank says in the statement.

The site was under supervision of a consulting firm and a contractor.

According to the agreement with CPD, the contractor firm is responsible for removal of all water, on a regular basis, during the construction of the building.

When the construction work was temporarily stopped during the Eid holidays, the contractor did not carry out its responsibility to remove rain water properly.

However, CPD regrets the incident and will be more alert in future to ensure cleanliness of the under- construction building, the statement adds.

Meanwhile, all the necessary measures have already been taken as per the advice of the DSCC team and DSCC officials expressed satisfaction after visiting the building later on Sunday.
