Police told to open fire if attacked

06 November 2015 bdnews24.com

Police top brass has ordered its forces to fire if attacked following the killing of two policemen on duty within a span of 15 days.
The police headquarters have issued a set of six guidelines for the security of its personnel across the country.
A circular signed by Bangladesh Police Headquarters AIG (Confidential) Md Moniruzzaman was issued to ensure the safety of weapons, vehicles, and logistics. It also contained the licence to fire if attacked.
Copies of it have been sent to the police commissioners, DIGs of various ranges, and RAB director general.
The circular begins by pointing at certain lapses. "Of late, police personnel have been killed or gravely injured by criminals because they were not in proper riot gear and not been correctly briefed or guided by senior officers. It has also been observed that senior officers or those in charge are often not accompanying the force."
Police personnel have been asked to follow the instructions to ensure their personal safety under the circumstances.
