He says everybody will be searched before entering the venue


Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia has visited the National Eidgah, the main congregation point of Eid-ul-Fitr to oversee security measures. 

There is no specific threat of terror attacks. But we have taken measures keeping in mind the attacks on Sholakia Eid congregation [in 2016],” he told reporters after visiting the Eidgah on Thursday. 

The DMP boss said everybody will be searched before entering the venue.  

Asaduzzaman said those who attend the prayers at the Eidgah will be barred from carrying: a knife, arms, metal or explosives. 

They will be allowed to bring prayer mat and umbrella, he said. 

He said policemen will be deployed to important establishments, shopping malls and offices during the Eid vacation.

The DMP commissioner said they have arranged a special Eid congregation for the duty police officials.

Muslims in Bangladesh will be celebrating Eid either on Saturday or Sunday, depending on the sighting of the moon.

Replying to a query, Asaduzzaman said the DMPkeeps an eye on militants and criminals even after they get released on bail.

“It is a matter of the court about granting bail. I will not comment on it.”

“Militancy is now a global issue. We arrested almost all militant kingpins. Some of their associates are still on the run. We are trying to arrest them,” he added.

The DMP chief said militant activities decreased thanks to the efforts of the law enforcement.
