147 BGB platoons deployed across country

A total of 147 platoons of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) have been deployed across the country to maintain law and order as the latest countrywide blockade of road, rail and waterways called by the BNP and like-minded opposition parties has been underway since Sunday morning.

Shariful Islam, public relations officer (PRO) at BGB headquarters, shared the information this morning.
Of the BGB platoons, 16 teams are patrolling in Dhaka and adjoining districts, he added.

This is the 12th such blockade called by the opposition parties since October 31, and the first since the announcement of BNP's non-cooperation movement against the government on December 20.

The blockade began at 6am and will end at 6 pm today. The presence of public transport and commuters on Dhaka streets seemed normal, despite tension and fear of arson attacks.
