Police redesigning ‘mode of action’: DMP chief09 July, 2016 11:08
Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Md Asaduzzaman Mia on Saturday said the ‘way of action’ of the police is being redesigned following the recent gruesome terror attack on Holey Artisan Bakery in the city’s Gulshan area, reports the UNB.
The DMP chief came up with the disclosure while talking to reporters at his office in the morning.
“This is new as such incident never happened in Bangladesh. As a result, we’ve started redesigning the ‘mode of action’ or ‘way of action’ of the police,” he said.
Those carried out the deadly attack on the restaurant were killed, and nobody will be spared if anyone tries to repeat such incident in the future, he added.
Asaduzzaman stressed forging a national unity to prevent militancy in the country, and sought help from the people of all walks of life, including teachers, religious scholars and journalists, to uproot militancy. “Steps have already been taken to create awareness in schools, colleges and universities to face terrorism and militancy,” he added.
Twenty-two people, including nine Italians, seven Japanese, one Indian national and two policemen were killed inside and outside of Holey Artisan Bakery, a Spanish restaurant, during the attack on July 1.
Later on the morning of July 2, six people with five attackers were also killed during a commando operation. Thirteen of the hostages were rescued alive in the operation.
