Tight security for Eid
Law enforcers have taken tight security measures across the country ahead of Eid-ul-Azha to be celebrated tomorrow.
“We have taken all possible measures to ensure security for peaceful celebration of the Eid,” said Inspector General of Police (IGP) AKM Shahidul Hoque.
The law enforcers have planned special security measures at the Eidgahs, especially in the divisional cities of Dhaka, Chittagong, Sylhet, Barisal, Khulna, Rajshahi and Rangpur.
Against the backdrop of the last year's militant attack, the government has taken special security measures at the country's largest Eidgah in Sholakia of Kishoreganj.
Law enforcers both in uniform and plain clothes are active at different strategic points in the cities, particularly at bus terminals, railway stations, river-ports and launch and ferry ghats.
They are also monitoring buses, launches, trains, auto-rickshaws, cars, microbuses and other vehicles at all strategic intersections in the big cities and its adjoining districts to prevent crimes.
Rab is monitoring the situation on highways for safe and sound journey of homebound people.
Dhaka Metropolitan Police has taken area-wise security measures with deployment of additional forces.
The security measures were taken two days before Eid, which will remain effective until the capital returns to normalcy after the festival.
