Rajshahi’s entry and exit points restricted

Rajshahi Metropolitan Police (RMP) on Monday imposed restrictions on entry and exit points of the city in a bid to check the spread of coronavirus.

Citing a police official, media report said that at least eight teams of police started patrolling 40 pre-selected spots of the city from 11:00 am to ensure the restrictions.

“Although we do not call it a lockdown, we will not allow anyone to go out and come into the city for the safety of the people,” said Golam Ruhul Kuddus, an additional deputy commissioner and also spokesperson of the RMP.

He further said they also imposed restrictions on the businesses of the city and asked for closure of all shops and markets excluding emergency services after 6pm.
