The High Court on Sunday asked the authorities concerned to maintain a status quo on felling of trees on Jashore-Narail Highway during the implementation of a six-lane project.

In response to a writ petition, the HC bench comprising Justice Md Khasruzzaman and Justice KM Zahid Sarwar passed the order.

The HC in its observation said the government should stop cutting trees for the sake of people and it is possible to carry out the development works keeping trees intact along the highways which will benefit people.

The HC also said that the status quo would remain in force till floating of tender for the six-lane project of the highway.

Human Rights and Peace for Bangladesh (HRPB) had on May 5 filed the writ petition with the HC after attaching a report published in a national daily that thousands of trees will be felled in Jashore and other parts of the country amid suffering of people caused by intense heat wave.
