The RAB chief said the drives against chemical warehouses and factories in Old Dhaka will continue, but no businessman would be penalized unjustly

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) Director General Benazir Ahmed on Saturday urged the businessmen concerned to shift their chemicals from warehouses in Old Dhaka carefully, so that there is no repeat of deadly fire in Chawkbazar on February 20.

 “The chemical warehouses in the Old Dhaka are like time bombs. We will not allow Dhaka to turn into a time bomb because of the careless of some people,” he said during a views exchange meeting at the Jail Convention Hall in Dhaka.

Adding that the government wants no flammable chemicals to be stored secretly in Old Dhaka, he said: “You [the businessmen] will transfer the chemicals carefully. We do not want to see any more deaths.”

The RAB chief further said the drives against chemical warehouses and factories in Old Dhaka will continue, but no businessman would be penalized unjustly. “It is not our intention to put the businessmen in a difficult situation.

 “We do not want to see another incident like the Nimtoli and Chawkbazar fires.”
