Police start gathering info on transport workers

Police have begun to collect information about public transport workers, which, they say, will make it easier for them to deal with various events like road crashes or any crimes committed by the workers, sources said.

When drivers or their assistants die in road crashes, it becomes difficult for policemen to identify them instantly. If they have a database of the workers, it will help them do their job easily, police said.

Associations of transport workers and owners and Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) are collecting the information.

Two years back, police collected information about citizens from all over the country which was aimed at combating radicalism and other crimes.
