“If anyone is found involved in crimes, the person will not be treated as police official. Legal and departmental action will be taken against them”
AKM Shahidul Haque, the inspector general of police, said on Wednesday.
“The existing law is there to protect tenants’ rights but they have so far been deprived due to a lack of implementation. As a result, the people from low income groups have been the worst sufferers.
In the slum areas of Dhaka, tenants pay more rent per square feet than those living in some of the posh areas. Poor people have to spend 50-60% of their incomes on paying rents. They do not have the means to run cases either”
Consumer Association of Bangladesh (CAB) President Golam Rahman said while talking about the High Court's verdict regarding house rents on Wednesday.
