Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia on Saturday said no ‘gang culture’ will be tolerated and it will be eliminated from the capital soon.
“No word like gang culture, either ‘teenage gang’ or ‘adult gang’, will remain prevalent in the city. All will be wiped out. The DMP has taken zero tolerance policy against the gang culture,” he told reporters while inspecting the security measures for 'Tajia' procession at Hosni Dalan in the city.
After inspecting the security measures, the DMP arranged a press conference there.
The DMP chief said, “No gang will be allowed to continue their misdeeds any longer in Dhaka.”
He also informed that policemen will remain vigilant against any miscreant to stop them from conducting any kind of sabotage in the ‘Tajia’ procession.
Earlier, police arrested some 110 ‘teenage gang’ members from Hatirjheel area of the capital yesterday.
Besides, more than 300 others were held from Mohammadpur and Mirpur area in separate drives.
Mohammadpur schoolboy Mohsin became the latest victim of ‘teenage gang culture’.
The ninth grader of Child Haven International School was hacked to death and his three friends were wounded in an attack by some teenage gang members three days ago.
