Dhaka, November 23: The police has sent a letter to the prison headquarters regarding dress while producing the accused who are terrorists, militants, convicted or convicted in multiple cases. The Prosecution Department of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) has sent this letter through the Commissioner of Police.

Jasim Uddin, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Prosecution Department of DMP, said on Tuesday (November 22), that due to the fact that important defendants were not chained while appearing in court, there have already been incidents of convicted defendants running away from the court.

The letter sent to the Jail Headquarters mentioned that terrorists, militants, accused of sensational cases and those convicted or convicted of multiple cases from the jails must wear turbans as per the Jail Code. In this situation, it was requested to take necessary measures to send the accused of various important cases from the jail to the court as per the jail code and to send the other important accused including militants and terrorists to separate prison vans.

On Sunday (November 20), militants abducted two convicts, Moinul Hasan Shamim alias Sifat Sami and Md Abu Chiddiq Sohail alias Shakib, who had been sentenced to death by spraying the police from the premises of the Dhaka Chief Judicial Magistrate's Court.

Accused Md. Arafat Rahman (24) and Md. A Sabur alias Raj alias Saad alias Sujan was arrested. The militants tried to snatch them too.
