Twenty-seven platoons of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) were deployed in Dhaka and adjoining districts on Sunday (November 5) to maintain law and order situation as the 48-hour countrywide blockade called by the BNP, Jamaat and likeminded opposition parties began in the morning.
Shariful Islam, public relations officer at BGB headquarters, confirmed the development in the morning, saying that 10 more platoons of the paramilitary forces had been kept standby to face any situation.
Like the first spell of the blockade, the members of the frontier battalion have been performing their duties alongside police, Rapid Action Battalion and Ansar to ensure public safety and security in Dhaka and other parts of the country.
After the three-day countrywide blockade, another road, rail and waterways blockade for 48 hours called by BNP, Jamaat and like-minded opposition parties began across the country on Sunday morning.
The blockade started at 6:00am on the day and will end at 6:00am on Tuesday.
The number of private and public transports on the road is more compared to the three-day blockade in the last week.
