Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dr Mohammad Javed Patwary on Saturday said a new unit of police will be formed soon to prevent spreading of rumours in social media sites.

“The formation of the unit is at its final stage. We will launch it upon receiving clearance from the Finance Ministry” IGP said was talking to reporters after the price giving ceremony following the final of Bangladesh Police Cricket Championship (IGP Cup) at the Armed Police Battalion (APBn) field in the capital’s Uttara area.

The police boss said “A few days back a rumour spread in the garments sector saying two-three people were killed and two others were missing. As a result, common people engaged in clashes without realising anything.”
