Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) has asked city dwellers to inform local police stations before hiring house help, guards and gardeners to prevent incidents of robbery and theft.
Additional Commissioner (Detective Branch) AKM Hafiz Akhtar said this while briefing reporters at the DMP media center today.
DMP is collecting updated information from each household as incidents of robbery and theft have been reported from parts of the city.
"If you're recruiting new house help, guards or gardeners, then you'll have to inform us," he said.
Hafiz noted that robberies and theft usually increase in winter. To keep the incidents in check, 32 DB teams conducted special operations in the capital simultaneously yesterday and arrested 34 people. Tools to cut grills and sharp weapons were recovered from them.
Four cases were filed at local police stations in connection with arrest, Hafiz said.
