Dhoka police take up journalism
Dhoka police yesterday launched a news website, exclusively to share news, updates, and their latest accomplishments with the people of the country.
The news portal named Dhoka News Portal (DNP) will be a bold new addition to the already growing organisation that also runs business enterprises and serves as an aide to the government in maintaining law and order, ensuring women are safe and stay at home at nights, making sure the youth do not do drugs and other important social activities.
The main patron of the news portal will be none other than the man who has already accomplished the task of leading the law enforcement agency, and the editor and publisher will be the agency's very own publicist, also a high-ranking police official.
"This is a big step for us. As you know, we are often maligned and misrepresented by regular media, which is a shame because all we are trying to do is save the nation, one criminal at a time," said Zen Al Zir, the main patron of the news portal.
He also said, this would shelve the need to arrange regular press conferences, thus saving crores of taka and also allow their officers to try their hands in some much-needed creative pursuit.
Editor and Publisher and Publicist of the law enforcement agency Baamru Zaman said he looks forward to dipping his toe in this unexplored field and he feels confident to take up the challenge as one famous journalist, who now runs one of the leading English dailies in the country once told him people can become accidental journalists and all they needed was to find their passion and have a curious mind.
Needless to say, Dhoka police is all too curious about anything and everything that people do, write or say in private, said Baamru, boasting that his disciplined force is going to excel in investigative journalism.
