RAB will be vigilant to face any kind of challenge, says official
The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has said that “three-dimensional” security measures have been taken by the force across the country, including Dhaka, to mark the New Year celebrations
“The security system has been developed into a three-dimensional strict security zone. This time the whole country including Dhaka will be brought under such strict surveillance,” said Lt Col Ashik Billah, director (legal and media wing) of RAB, on Sunday.
Mentioning that there is no security threat around the upcoming New Year’s Eve this time, he said that RAB will work to prevent any kind of militant attack or sabotage plan.
“RAB will be vigilant to face any kind of challenge,” he added.
He termed this year’s 31st night a little different as people are going to welcome the New Year amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Mentioning that the RAB’s cyber unit will carry out special surveillance through social media, he said that all kinds of security measures have been taken around December 31.
In the first phase, plain-clothed RAB members will be on the field, he said, adding that in the second phase, the 15 battalions of the RAB will be on patrol in their own areas.
The RAB spokesperson further said that RAB will work in coordination with other law enforcement agencies.
He urged people from all over the country to enjoy the New Year with their families.
