Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) on Saturday imposed a ban on the use or carrying of all types of firecrackers in the capital city on the night of holy Shab-e-Barat which will be observed today.

The ban has been placed in accordance with the Section 28 of DMP’s Police Ordinance-1976 and will take effect from 6:00 pm to 6:00 am the following day.

The ban aims to ensure the sanctity and peaceful observation of the holy night.

Though playing with firecrackers is dangerous, some like to explode it on the holy night.

And it becomes a nightmare when crackers accidentally blow up in their hands, which may cripple them for life.
