The team, including members of law enforcement agencies, along with necessary equipment took position in front of the 16-storey building to start demolition works on Tuesday morning.

Al preparations have been taken to demolish the building, said Rajuk director (Admin), Khandakar Oliur Rahman.

“We have given them [institutes that are housed in the building] two-hour time to remove their valuables,” he added.

Later, the gas, electricity and other utility service will be cut off.

Meanwhile, Rajuk on Monday night sent a letter to Hatirjheel project director for taking steps for demolishing the building following a High Court order.

In 2011, the High Court ordered demolition of the 16-storey building as it was constructed in defiance of relevant laws, calling it a "cancer" in the lake.

Earlier on April 2 2018, the Supreme Court granted BGMEA one more year (until April 12, 2019) for demolishing following a leave-to-appeal after giving a undertaking.

The 15-storey BGMEA Bhaban stands on a critical spot in Dhaka, blocking the flow of water between Hatirjheel lake and Begunbari canal.
