A Bangladeshi child laborer works in a casting factory at a dockyard beside the Buriganga River in Dhaka on July 16, 2012. Twenty-eight dockyards occupying 30.96 acres of the Buriganga foreshore have been in operation for the last 50 years without any authorization or guidelines. These dockyards are polluting the river and encroaching into the riverbank, reducing its navigability.
