  • Mobile court to stop jaywalking

    Drive to begin Nov 25 along VIP road after 3-day awareness campaign

    Mobile court to stop jaywalking
    Pedestrians in the capital in many cases tend not to bother for the traffic signals, instructions of the police and even the rules. This Star file photo shows people are crossing the Kazi Nazrul Islam Avenue at Karwan Bazar where it is not allowed.

    A special mobile court will start working along Dhaka’s main VIP road on November 25 to stop jaywalking, slapping the violators with six-month jail or Tk 200 in fine amid a nagging traffic congestion. Before the operation begins, the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) will...

The amount detected is insignificant given the culture of rampant tax dodging in the country, said Ahsan H Mansur, executive director of Policy Research Institute (PRI). But the CIC said its activities have made a "multidimensional impact" on tax compliance -- by recovering lost revenue, increasing voluntary disclosure of higher income and acting as a deterrent for potential...

     Op-ed

WE felicitate the High Court for reinstating the seven-year imprisonment term for reckless driving by striking out the nearly three-decade old amendments to the CrPC and the Penal Code. Those amendments had commuted the maximum punishment from seven to three years during Ershad era. Thus, the raising of the jail term from 3 to 7 years is an improvement from a retrograde measure but it does not go far enough. And as if to emphasise the point the court itself recommended further increase in punishment to “uphold people's right to life.” All this sounds somewhat academic when you consider the research finding that only less than five percent culprits actually get punished. That...
