Do Not Spread Rumors: Police

Police have requested mainstream media and social media users not to spread rumors about them by utilizing old pictures of police beating people up.  

"A racket is editing old pictures and videos (showing police are torturing the public), then re-posting those pictures on social media," a police headquarters press release said Monday (March 30).

“A few news media are also publishing news relating to those old pictures of police beating up people. This is making the people of the country believe that the police are using brutal force against the citizens of the country at present.”

When asked about the general case, the police headquarters explained matters by saying that the police used force against citizens who had fled their homes without wearing masks on the first day of the ten-day holiday. But as citizens protested about it, the government took measures against the guilty policeman and no police officers have used any sort of force since then.

Police headquarters have said the photos circulated on social networking and news outlets date back to 2011 when police were seen attacking BNP members involved in lighting cars and other items on fire.

Police believed a network had been involved in trading the pictures and publishing them on different social networks to tarnish the reputation of power.
