‘Bhashan Char police station and Rohingya camp will now be able to communicate with other parts of the country easily’

Police have established a wireless communication system using VSAT through Bangabandhu satellite for the first time in Bangladesh.

This has opened a new horizon in wireless communication, connecting Bhashan Char police station and Rohingya camp directly with Dhaka and other police units from Wednesday.

VSAT, a very small aperture terminal, is a small-sized two-way ground station that transmits and receives data, voice and video signals over a satellite communication network, excluding broadcast television.

“Thanks to the wireless communication system, remote Bhashan Char police station and Rohingya camp will be able to communicate with other parts of the country easily and without any obstruction in case of any natural calamity including cyclone,” said AIG (media) of Police Headquarters Md Sohel Rana.

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal formally opened the newly-built Bhashan Char police station in the remote island under Hatia upazila of Noakhali on January 19 this year to ensure the overall law and order situation.

The government invested more than $350 million to develop the 13,000 acres island and provide all modern amenities for Rohingyas.

The government plans to shift some 100,000 Rohingyas to Bhashan Char in phases. Currently, several thousand of them are living there.
