Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Md Shafiqul Islam directed deputy commissioners and officers-in-charge to form committees at all the mandaps ahead of the Durga Puja, the biggest religious festival of the Hindu community, aiming to ensure security there.

The commissioner made the directive in a meeting on the security plan on the puja held in the DMP headquarters on Monday afternoon.

He asked the deputies to forge the committees with the participation of local people and policemen.
The DMP took all out security measures, said the commissioner, in and out of each puja mandap so that the devotees could offer prayers in a fearless atmosphere.

The chief of the metropolitan police also asked his juniors not to allow anybody in the mandaps sans wearing facemasks.

Shafiqul discouraged the people above 70 to visit the puja mandaps  for their welfare.
