In the backdrop of recent militant attacks across the country, law enforcers will beef up security before and after the two great religious festivals of the Muslim and Hindu communities respectively in different areas in the city and upazila headquarters of the district. SMP ADC Rahmatullah said.
The SMP will install nearly 100 closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras at different strategic points to monitor the security measures arranged for the city dwellers after and before the Eid.
According to sources with the SMP and district police, the additional security measures will be in force for two days before and after the Eid. Necessary instructions to this effect have been issued to all the police stations and camps.
Apart from deployment of additional forces, detective vigilance was intensified in all the busiest areas in the city and district.
All the entry points of the city like Kazir Bazar Bridge, City Point and Kazir Bazar area in the city were brought under tight security measures with CCTV monitoring. Necessary instructions were also given to search suspicious persons at any points during the period.
On the other hand, RAB-9 has taken all-out security measures to make the holy occasions a total success.
