Foolproof security for book fair, says DMP commissioner

UNB, Dhaka

Foolproof security measures have been taken for the month-long Ekushey Book Fair scheduled to begin on Friday, said Dhaka Metropolitan Police Commissioner Asaduzzman Mia. "We earlier had said no book hurting religious sentiments or containing provocative elements will be allowed at the book fair but if any such book is found in any stall then the Bangla Academy authorities will take action," said the DMP commissioner at a press briefing at the Suhrawardy Udyan after visiting the fair venue.

He said the intelligence team will remain vigil to stop the publication of such books. Besides, Asaduzzaman said if any writer or blogger want private security then security will be provided to them upon request. Police will take steps to prevent the entry of vendors into and setting up of makeshift shops in and around the book fair.

A special team of police will be deployed at the fair to prevent stalking of female visitors and the offenders will be punished by a mobile court, said the DMP chief.

The DMP Commissioner said a team of Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) will remain alert to tackle any militant attack or any unavoidable incident. Besides, he said, an 'invisible' team of police will be deployed in and around the fair venue for any instant action. Law enforcers, including plainclothes police, DB and SB, will patrol in and around the book fair venue, he added. People have to enter the fair venue through archways as in previous years and the movement of people will be kept under surveillance through watchtowers.

The whole areas, including Suhrawardy Uddyan, Bangla Academy, Doyel Chattar and Raju Sculpture, will be kept under close circuit cameras, the DMP commissioner added.
