Staff Correspondent: Director General of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) Benzir Ahmed said we have intelligence information that Old Dhaka’s businessmen are shifting their chemical substances to other residential areas because of taskforce operation begins.

He further said, “In fear of the taskforce operation, many of the businessmen keeping the chemical materials at their living house while somebodies at their relative houses. Earlier, Old-Dhaka was a time bomb. Now we have to be cautious so that the entire Dhaka does not turn into the time bomb.”

RAB DG said this while exchanging views at a programme in the capital’s Bakshibazar area on Saturday noon.

RAB-10 arranged the special view exchange meeting in aiming to shift factories and godowns of chemical and other risky combustible substance from the Old-Dhaka.

Benzir said, “People of Old-Dhaka have been living on time bombs. People who killed in Churihatta fire had also been living beside time bombs. We do not want happening another third incident like Churihatta. We do not want to see death of any people in such incident.”
