‘Chemical factories are like ‘ticking time bombs’

Staff Reporter, Dhaka

Director General (DG) of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), Benazir Ahmed, yesterday said that chemical factories are like ‘ticking time bombs’. He thanked the businessmen and trader of chemical factories who are moving the chemical factories from Old Part of Dhaka on their own effort.

During a view-exchange meeting with, businesspersons of Old Dhaka regarding to the relocation of chemicals, plastic and other flammable products from residential area, the DG said, “We do not want another incident like Nimtoli and Chawkbazar.”

The elite force DG said that the drives against chemical godowns and factories in Old Dhaka will go on but it will be ensured no businessperson is affected unjustly by the drives.

“The law enforcer’s aim is not to place businesspersons in a troublesome circumstance”, he said.

Meanwhile, President of the Dhaka South City Businessperson Oikkya Parishad Abdus Salam, at the meeting, demanded that the taskforce discontinue the drive against chemicals in Old Dhaka.

“Businesspersons live in constant fear,” Abdus Salam said claiming that those chemicals which have been identified as flammable have already been moved.
