Police have nothing to do with politics, says new DMP commissioner
Newly appointed Dhaka Metropolitan Police Commissioner Khandker Golam Faruq today said police have nothing to do with politics.
"Political parties will do politics. Police do not have any role in it. We do not have any headache about it [politics]," he said in his maiden press briefing at DMP media centre today (October 31, 2022), two days after he took the charges.
The commissioner said, "Our work is dealing with law and order and crimes," he said, adding that all political parties, except for the banned ones, will hold political rallies and processions."
Police will help political parties until they indulge in criminal offences including torching and vandalising vehicles on the streets, he added.
"We will deal it with strong hands," he warned.
