Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) on Tuesday imposed a ban on holding any procession and carrying sharp weapons, explosives, flammable materials in the capital on Thursday (Feb 8).
The DMP came up with the ban to avert any untoward incident on the day as a special court in Dhaka fixed February 8 to announce verdict in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case filed against Khaleda, her son Tarique Rahman and four others.
The decision has been taken over intelligence and news reports that subversive activities might be carried out on the day centering the verdict, said a DMP press release signed by DMP Commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia.
The ban will be effective from 4:00am and continue until further notice.
Meanwhile, Khulna Metropolitan Police (KMP) imposed a similar ban on holding any rally, meeting and mass gathering from 6am on Wednesday till Friday midnight for unavoidable reasons, said a KMP press release singed by its Commissioner Md Humayun Kabir on Tuesday.
