A total of 156 platoons of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) have been deployed across the country to maintain law and order as the latest 48-hour countrywide blockade of road, rail and waterways called by the BNP and like-minded opposition parties is underway.
Shariful Islam, public relations officer (PRO) at BGB headquarters, shared the information on Wednesday morning.
Along with the BGB platoons, 422 patrol teams of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) have been deployed across the country.
Among them, 130 patrol teams were deployed in Dhaka considering the increasing arson attacks.
RAB is ensuring the security of long-distance public transport and goods-carrying transport in different parts of the country, said Imran Khan, assistant superintendent of police (ASP) at the media wing of the RAB headquarters.
