IGP: No security risks on Eid
Inspector General of Police (IGP) AKM Shahidul Hoque said there will be no security threats in the country during the Eid-ul-Azha festival. The IGP made the statement after inspecting the Dhaka-Ashulia-Chandra highway and cattle markets at Gazipur and Gabtoli area on Wednesday. He said security measures have been improved on the highways, railways and waterways for the safety of travellers. “So far, the highways appear to be safe and we hope to offer smooth vehicle movement so that commuters are comfortable during the next two days before Eid,” IGP Shahidul said. The IGP also added that no incidents of theft have been reported in Dhaka’s cattle markets due to the tight security measures taken by law-enforcement officials. He further said police are actively preventing money counterfeiting operations. They have installed machines in the markets to detect forged notes and ensure a safe trade. Senior police officials expressed their satisfaction regarding the safety after inspecting the location, the IGP also said. ‘Do not carry anything except prayer mat and water’ Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) Director General (DG) Benazir Ahmed said people are not allowed to bring anything for Eid-ul-Azha jamaat at the National Eidgah and Baitul Mukarram National Mosque, except a prayer mat and water. The RAB DG made the statement after visiting the National Eidgah field in the High court area on Wednesday. He also said nearly 600 Eid jamaat will be held in Dhaka on Eid day. The DG said: “We have taken the security measures keeping all risk factors in mind. “In addition, other law enforcement will coordinate with RAB to maintain overall security. “I request the citizens to cooperate with the law-enforcement officials and not consider the security procedures unnecessary. Even if the process takes longer, please make safety a priority,” he added.
