The Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) has said that it will take legal action against meetings, processions, rallies and programs of any kind held in the metropolitan area without its permission.  

A press release – signed by DMP Commissioner Md Shafiqul Islam –was issued by the DMP Media and Public Relation Division in this regard on Wednesday.

The DMP urged all to refrain from organizing processions, meetings, gatherings and other activities without taking its prior permission for the sake of the overall safety of life and property in the metropolitan area.

The DMP commissioner sought cooperation from all sections of people to maintain peace, law and order and public security in Dhaka city.

“It has been noticed that different social, political and religious organizations are holding meetings, rallies and mass gatherings without taking prior permission from the appropriate authorities.

“Traffic and public movements are being disrupted due to such activities on city roads,” the DMP statement read.

According to the DMP Ordinance, taking prior permission from the DMP commissioner is a must to hold such programs and use sound equipment inside the areas under its jurisdiction in order to ensure the civic amenities of the general people, law and order and traffic control.

It is not possible to maintain rules and regulations relating to processions and security of people involved in organizing such programs if prior permission is not taken, added the statement. 

On the other hand, some parties or groups get the scope to destabilize law and order by organizing rallies illegally, the statement noted.
