Security has been beefed up in the capital ahead of National Mourning Day on Wednesday even though Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia said on Tuesday that there is no threat surrounding the commemorations.

“We have taken up several tiers of security measures for National Mourning Day, though there is no security threat,” the commissioner told reporters after visiting Bangabandhu Museum in Dhanmondi Road 32, Dhaka.

The Bangabandhu Museum is the former residence of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and is the site where he and most of his family members were assassinated on August 15, 1975.  

The DMP chief said traffic would be off limits at Dhanmondi Road 32 when President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina pay their tributes before Bangabandhu’s portrait on Wednesday.  

“We have conducted block raids, set up checkpoints, and taken other security measures at the venues in Dhaka where programs will be held for National Mourning Day,” the DMP chief said.

The block raids were conducted last week in the New Market area, Dhanmondi, Kalabagan, and Sher-e-Bangla Nagar and adjacent areas.

The DMP commissioner also sought the public’s cooperation for the smooth observation of National Mourning Day.

“I am asking people not to carry handbags, knives, and flammable items while visiting Dhanmondi Road 32 to pay their tributes,” he said.
