Students of a school razed down the boundary wall on a government land in Sadar upazila on Sunday.
Harinarayanpur Girls' High School authorities said their students demolished the wall owned by Ganges-Kobadak Project (GK Project).
Governing body President Nayeb Ali Khan said the girls have done it to extend their playground. The school was established in 1972 on two acres of land. It has 1,300 students.
“Students face shortage of space during their morning assembly,” Nayeb said.
He said they had been trying to lease the land beside the school as it is totally abandoned, but the project authorities did not respond.
“On Sunday afternoon, students razed the wall. We informed the project authorities of the matter," said Headmaster Ekramul Haq.
GK Project Executive Engineer Arif-uz-zaman said that they received an application for leasing of the land several months ago.
