Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) today said they made all required arrangements to enforce a stringent security vigil as the month-long Dhaka International Trade Fair, 2019 is set to begin in the capital on January 9.

“We have taken a tight and coordinated security arrangement for foolproof security in and around of the trade fair venue deploying a large number of police force,” DMP Commissioner Md Asaduzzaman Mia said ahead of the fair.

He said in coordination with other law enforcement agencies, police would keep an eye on the venue and “everyone will have to pass through metal detectors and archways there”.

The DMP chief said hawkers and baggers would be debarred from roaming around the venue which would be brought under closed circuit camera televisions.

The DMP, he said would install a makeshift control room, lost and found centre, medical centre and four help desks to facilitate visitors while special police teams would be in place to stop ticket black marketing and eve-teasing.

He has warned of taking stern action against the food courts which would not show price list.

The DMP chief requested all the people concerned to discharge their professional duties with utmost sincerity and professionalism.
