RAB prepares digital database of over 2.53 lakh criminals

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has prepared the largest ever digital database of over 2 lakh 53 thousand identified criminals, including a large number of militants, reports BSS.
The database contains 150 types of information such as photographs, biometric finger prints, irises and previous criminal records and punishments in criminal offences, according to official sources.
"The particulars of the criminals, readily available in the database, are helping us a lot to prevent and combat crimes, particularly militant activities," Director General of RAB Benazir Ahmed told BSS.
RAB started preparing the database in 2011, with inclusion the information of the militants arrested by the force and the prisoners who were sentenced to various jail term under Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC).
Trained operators of RAB visited 64 jails out of 67 prisons (except three of hilly districts) across the country to collect basic information of the criminals for preparing the database. The officials also trained a number of jail officials to help them preparing the list of the criminals.
Currently, the RAB officials concerned are adding related information to the main server of the database in one minute of arrest of any criminal or militant by the anti-crime elite force.
A code number is allocated for each of the criminals. All the information about a criminal comes out in few seconds after pressuring the particular code number.
RAB has assigned trained personnel at all its battalions and crime prevention teams to upload data to its main server at the headquarters in Dhaka. The database is able to detect the persons who commit crimes with using different identities.
The force has also detected 1100 such people who committed crimes in different names after matching their information with the criminal database.
It has obtained access to the database of the NID (national identity card) to know criminal involvement of a person through verification of his information from the NIDs.
Work is going on to get access to MRP (Machine Readable Passport) database and drivers' license database of Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) to get the similar information.
RAB also introduced Jail Inmate Database on February 7 in 2016, incorporating 200 types of data of 58,000 criminals, who was in jail even for a single day. The database preserved biometric finger prints of 10 fingers of both hands and iris scan of the criminals.
Previous crime records, types of crimes, punishments, name of criminals, their addresses and professions are also included in this database.
