Dhaka::Digital desk news::
Inspector General of Police (IGP) Benazir Ahmed has warned saying unnecessary movement must be stopped amid nationwide lockdown.
The IGP said, “We don’t want to see anyone on the streets and outside during lockdown from tomorrow… Everyone should follow restrictions willingly, rather than under pressure. If the restrictions are not followed, the whole of Bangladesh will have to be taken in isolation.”
He made the remarks while launching the “Police Movement Pass” apps during Lockdown on Tuesday at Rajarbagh Police Lines.
About 1.25 lakh applications were received in the first hour. Moreover, at least 15,000 applications are being submitted in per minute, according to AIG Media and PR.
“Police will monitor the lockdown like previous year,” the IGP added.
Millions of people left Dhaka last year. This time, people are also leaving Dhaka for the last several days which is not right thing and morally very unjust acts, he said.
During lockdown, no one will be allowed to come out without movement pass. However, journalists do not need any movement pass, he informed.
Bangladesh is going to a strict lockdown from Wednesday to tackle worsening situation of coronavirus.
The government on Monday announced a set of restrictions to be imposed during the nationwide one-week strict lockdown from 14-21 April.
