Additional DIG for Rangpur Range Abdul Majid, Superintendent of Police of Rangpur Mizanur Rahman, Additional Superintendents of Police Abu Maruf Hossain, Fazle Elahi (Special Branch) and Saifur Rahman Saif (A Circle) were present.

He called upon the journalists to remain aware of filing reports those might create fear in the public mind or destabilize the society.
