The Bangladesh Police Service Association((BPSA)  has said that in recent times partial, motivated and indiscriminate  reports about former and serving members of the Bangladesh police are being published serially in the news media (print and electronic) and the social media.

The organisation has strongly protested against this.
BPSA has criticised the mass medias role in publishing reports on corruption committed by former and incumbent members of Bangladesh police.

"In recent times, both print and electronic media, along with social media, have consistently been publishing partially true, biased and false reports about former and current members of the police deliberately," the BPSA said in a statement on Friday.

Various reports have appeared in the media in recent times concerning the wealth and assets of the former inspector general of police (IGP) Benazir Ahmed and his family, as well as of former Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) commissioner Asaduzzaman Miah and his family.

Benazir and his family left the country after the Anti-Corruption Commission began investigating his wealth.

Expressing a strong condemnation in this regard, the BPSA called upon the media men to uphold the rules and regulations of journalism in publishing reports over indulgence of former and current policemen in corruption.

The BPSA issued this statement after media reports brought to light the concerning allegations against former Inspector General of Police (IGP) Benazir Ahmed.

Now, various media have also published reports that former commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Asaduzzaman Mia and his family members reportedly own several plots, apartments and lands in Dhaka.

Under these circumstances, the BPSA held a meeting at the Police headquarters in Dhaka on Thursday and during the meeting, some participants suggested going for legal action against the journalists responsible for such reporting.

In the statement, the BPSA said a section of mass media is engaged in publishing news against police officials with a motive of their personal gain, going beyond the ethics of journalism.
The press release issued by the Police Service Association, the organisation of the polices BCS cadre officers, highlighted Bangladesh polices integrity, their contribution to the Liberation War, their role in uprooting terrorism and militancy, their role during the pandemic and more. It said, the police force is an over century-old institution.

At the call of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, during the great War of Liberation the Bengali members of the police built up armed resistance against the Pakistan occupational forces who were equipped with advanced weaponry.

From back then down till today, the members of Bangladesh police have never hesitated to even sacrifice their lives in the interests of the people during any crisis.
