City police asked to monitor salt prices

Members of police have been asked to monitor the salt market and conduct search in grocery shops of the city so that none can provoke unrest by crating artificial crisis of salt.

Additional commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Monirul Islam made the directives to the law enforcers through a wireless message on Tuesday.

Several officers-in-charge (OCs) of the DMP, including OC of Mugda Police Station Proloy Kumar Saha, confirmed this to media.

Proloy Kumar Saha said, “We are conducting campaigns as per the directives of high authorities so that none can create any disorder by increasing salt prices. We are closely monitoring the price situation at the shops so that business man can’t sell salt charging an extra price from the consumers.”
