The Speedy Trial Tribunal-1 is scheduled to deliver its verdicts in two cases on Wednesday

Stern actions will be taken if anyone tries to create anarchy centering the verdict of August 21 grenade attack cases, says the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) commissioner.

"Police will deal with an iron hand if any quarter tries to create anarchy," Asaduzzaman Miah told reporters after attending a prize giving ceremony at Rajarbagh Police lines in Dhaka on Tuesday.

The DMP chief said there is no specific threat but police have taken  all necessary preparations to tackle troublemakers.

The Speedy Trial Tribunal-1 is scheduled to deliver its verdicts in two cases on Wednesday, 14 years after the grenade attack on an Awami League rally at the Bangabandhu Avenue in Dhaka that left 24 dead and scores injured.

"We are fully prepared to tackle any unwanted situation if any vested quarter tries to violate the safety of the people, vandalize or wage any arson attack on them," said the DMP chief.

People should not be afraid of any unwanted situation as the law enforcers are on high alert, he said.
