A multi tier elaborate security system has been drawn up by law enforcers in and around the Central Shaheed Minar ahead of the observance of International Mother Language Day tomorrow.
“Although there are no specific security threats, measures have been taken to ensure peaceful observance of International Mother Language Day,” Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia said.

“Only the VVIP visitors including the president, prime minister, cabinet members and foreign diplomats will access Shaheed Minar through Doyel Chattar,” he said, adding, general people will enter through the Palashi intersection.
Due to security measures, the palashi entry point will be opened at 12:30pm tomorrow for the visitors to pay homage to the language heroes, the DMP boss added.
