Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) members will be deployed across the country to maintain law and order during the holidays of Eid-ul-Azha, RAB Director General Benazir Ahmed has said. The elite force chief was briefing journalists after visiting Jatiya Eidgah in Dhaka on Sunday afternoon. Tight security measures comprising the members of all law enforcement agencies have already been taken to ensure safety for the citizens throughout the country, said Benazir. Militancy and terrorism will never be established in Bangladesh due to the effective steps taken by the government, he said while replying to the queries of the reporters on recent militants’ activities. He requested all the devotees not to carry anything except the Jainamaz in the Eidgah. Benazir has expressed deep shock at the deaths and injuries in a factory fire at Tongi BSCIC Industrial area in Gazipur on Saturday.
