Police keeping extortionists on chase: DMP Commissioner

Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Assaduzzaman Miah on Friday said police were keeping extortionists and snatchers on chase to retain the law and order situation in the country normal ahead of Eid.

He said, “Detectives have been following their foot-steps for last two months. As a result, no mentionable incidents of snatching or extortions took place in the country.”

The DMP boss came up with the disclosure while attending a program at Kamalapur Railway station in the capital today (May 24).

He also said, “Most of the people living in Dhaka will leave the city on the occasion of holy Eid-ul-Fitr. So, security measures have been beefed up for empty Dhaka and home-bound people.”

Mentioning the black marketing of Eid tickets, DMP commissioner further said, “Measures have been taken to fend off black marketing of tickets of Bus, launch and train.”
