CHATTOGRAM: Speakers at a view exchange meeting on Wednesday laid emphasis on monitoring by mobile court to keep prices of essential commodities under control during the Ramadan.

Chittagong Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI) organised the meeting to discuss on keeping prices of essential commodities, traffic movement, and law and order situation under control at Bangabandhu Conference Hall of World Trade Centre (WTC) in the city’s Agrabad area.

Chattogram Metropolitan Police (CMP) Acting Commissioner Masood-Ul-Hasan was the chief guest at the meeting chaired by CCCI president Mahbubul Alam.

Addressing the programme, Acting Police Commissioner Masood said they have already taken many initiatives centring the Ramadan so that people can perform it in a peaceful way.

He warned that strict action will be taken for violation of traffic rules as the traffic congestion will aggravate sufferings of city dwellers several times. Community police will assist traffic police in keeping traffic movement smooth in the city, he said.

The commissioner also informed that traffic police will refrain from checking documents and other papers of vehicles to ensure hassle-free movement of commuters during the Ramadan.

However, drives will be carried out in specific vehicles if there is any information of criminal activities, he said. 

Police will also remain alert to check availability of counterfeit notes from home and neighbouring country in the markets during the Ramadan and Eid-Ul-Fitr, he said.
