‘Three-dimensional’ security measures taken for 31st night
DHAKA, Dec 27, 2020 (BSS) – The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has said that “three-dimensional” security measures have been taken by the RAB across the country, including the capital, to mark the Thirty First Night celebration of the English year.
“The security system has been developed into a three-dimensional strict security zone. This time the whole country including Dhaka will be brought under such strict surveillance,” Lieutenant colonel Ashiq Billah, a spokesman of RAB’s Law and Mass Media Wing, told BSS today.
Mentioning that there is no security threat around ‘Thirty First Night’ this time, he said that RAB will work to prevent any kind of militant attack or sabotage plan.
“RAB will be vigilant to face any kind of challenge,” he added.
He termed this year’s Thirty First Night a little different as people are going to welcome the New Year amid pandemic.
Mentioning that the RAB’s cyber unit will carry out special surveillance through social media, he said that all kinds of security measures have been taken around the Thirty First Night.
In the first phase, plain clothed RAB members will be on the field, he said, adding that in the second phase, the 15 battalions of the RAB will be on patrol in their own areas.
The RAB spokesperson further said that RAB will work in coordination with other law enforcement agencies.
He urged people from all over the country to enjoy the New Year with their families.
