Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) has opened a Facebook page titled 'Rab Cyber News Verification Center’ to verify fake news as well as to create public awareness against false news and rumor spread during the 11th national elections.

Director General (DG) of Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) Benazir Ahmed revealed it at a press conference regarding the elite force's preparation for the 11th parliamentary election at its media center in Dhaka's Karwan Bazar today.

Rab DG said, if anyone becomes confused about any news, he/she will have to share it on the Facebook page and the Rab team will instantly reply it after verifying the truth.

Rab officials will work round the clock, he added.

He also said the Facebook page will remain open to counter all lies, rumors and false news centering the election slated for December 30.

"If anyone dares to carry out violence in any place, we will obstruct them and the force is ready to resist them," RAB DG said.

Two army helicopters will remain standby on the Election Day; he said adding, "A special force will be kept standby for travelling to any part of the country if needed."

Benazir also requested all to inform them any kind of violent incidents so that they can take instant action.
