The Dhaka Metropolitan Police on Saturday said that they made all the required arrangements to enforce stringent security vigil as the month-long Dhaka International Trade Fair 2019 was set to begin in the capital on January 9.
‘We have taken a tight and coordinated security arrangement for foolproof security in and around the trade fair
venue by deploying a large number of police force,’ DMP commissioner Md Asaduzzaman Mia said ahead of the fair.
He said that in coordination with other law enforcement agencies, the police would keep an eye on the venue and ‘everyone will have to pass through metal detectors and archways’.
The DMP chief said that hawkers and beggars would be barred from roaming around the venue which would be brought under supervision of closed circuit camera televisions.
The DMP chief said that they would install a makeshift control room, lost and found centre, medical centre and four help desks for visitors while special police teams would be in place to stop ticket black marketing and eve-teasing.
He warned of taking stern action against food courts which would not show the price list.
The DMP chief requested all the people concerned to discharge their professional duties with utmost sincerity and professionalism.
