Sunamganj Correspondent : Inspector General of Police (IGP) Chowdhury Abdullah Al-Mamun on Friday said his agency has achieved enviable success in curbing militancy in Bangladesh and it is fully under control now.
An anti-militancy drive in the Chattogram Hill Tracts (CHT) is underway, he told reporters after inaugurating a police sports complex at Wejkhali in Sunamganj town.
“We do not want to say anything about this for tactical reasons. We will tell you everything when the drive is over,” he said.
He also formally inaugurated a police shopping mall at Sunamganj Sadar Model Police Station area on the same day.
The IGP said police follow zero-tolerance policy towards militancy and terrorism and militants are arrested as soon as they emerge.
“After the Holey Artisan tragedy, no other major militant attack was carried out in the country,” he added.
Chowdhury Abdullah Al-Mamun said the law and order situation in the country is completely under control of police. “It’s my first visit to Sunamganj after I took over the charge as IGP, because I’m the son of Sunamganj, and also of this haor area. I have grown up living with the soil and water of this haor area. I learnt how to swim witnessing the waves of haor. People of the haor area work hard. I have been grown up with them. When I come here, I feel I have arrived at the lap of my mother.”
“I’m grateful that honourable prime minister has made me the police chief keeping faith and trust in me. I convey deep gratitude to the prime minister and the home minister,” he added.
The IGP also said tourist police would be established in Sunamganj so that travellers can visit places of their choice safely.
