Bangladesh Jeweller’s Association (BAJUS) has called upon police authorities to beef up security of jewellery markets and outlets across the country during the Eid holidays.

BAJUS President Sayem Sobhan Anvir sent a letter to Inspector General of Police Dr Benazir Ahmed on Tuesday, requesting him to take necessary steps to beef up security of jewellery shops.

The letter reads, “On behalf of BAJUS, I offer you best wishes in advance for the holy Eid-ul-Fitr. You are aware that almost all the jewellery markets and shops in the country remain closed due to the long Eid vacation. During this time, there is a possibility of occurring untoward incidents, including theft and robbery. Such the incidents have happened in the past too.” “Under the circumstances, jewellery traders are very concerned about the safety of their respective businesses. In this context, I am requesting you to take round-the-clock security and extra surveillance measures in jewellery markets and establishments for the security of jewellery shops across the country during Eid,” the letter reads.
