RAB takes tight security measures ahead of Eid-ul-Azha


DHAKA, Aug 18, 2018 (BSS) – The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has taken
stringent security measures across the country particularly in the capital
for peaceful celebration of the Eid-ul-Azha.

“We have been implementing a two-week security plan for smooth and peaceful
celebration before, during and after the Eid-ul-Azha. Some 245 patrol teams
and 56 striking forces have been working across the country to make the
security foolproof,” Director General (DG) of RAB Benazir Ahmed told a press
briefing at Kawran Bazar here.

Besides, RAB has a plan to take elaborate security measures at Eidgahs,
mosques, cattle markets, highways, terminals to put a security blanket across
the country, he also said.

Replying to a query about any threat ahead of Eid, the RAB chief said that
they have prepared the security plan taking everything in mind, adding that
intelligence surveillances have been intensified to oversee the activities of
underground and active militant organizations.

RAB will give updates on their Facebook page on the overall situation and
schedules of bus, train, launch and highways in the country to make the
journey of home goers hassle free. The RAB chief requested all to visit the
facebook page of RAB to get latest traffic updates.
