230 posts of SPs to be created soon Supernumerary posts also to be abolished Deepak Acharjee, Dhaka The government has decided to create 230 posts of superintendents of police (SPs) after abolishing 230 supernumerary posts of SPs in the police department soon. The decision was taken at a Departmental Promotion Committee (DPC) meeting, held in the Security Services Division of the home ministry, with additional secretary (police and NTMC), Md Nurul Islam, in the chair on Tuesday, home ministry sources said. The new posts of SPs would be created in different wings of the police, including the police headquarters, Special Branch (SB), Criminal Investigation Department (CID), and the Police Investigation Bureau (PBI), the sources added. The Security Service Division had created the 230 supernumerary posts of SPs on November 8, 2018, for one year to promote 230 additional superintendents of police (Addl. SPs) to the higher post of SP, the sources added. With the proposed 230 posts, the strength of SPs will be over 500. Talking to The Independent, Md Nurul Islam said they will send their decision to create 230 SP posts to the Ministry of Public Administration and the Finance Division seeking their approval. “After getting the approval, we will prepare a proposal, which would be sent to the Secretary Committee on Administrative Improvement Affairs. We will take further steps after getting the recommendation from the Secretary Committee,” he added. Sources said the 230 supernumerary posts of SPs will be abolished when the Security Service Division issues a gazette notification in this regard after completing all the process. According to the sources, the "22", "24", and "25" batches of the Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) police cadre are working as supernumerary SPs in different wings in the police department. There could be problems in promoting the supernumerary SPs to the higher post if they are not in permanent posts, the sources claimed. During the regime of Sheikh Hasina, the police authorities have formed several police units, such as the Police Bureau of Counter Terrorism, Rangpur Metropolitan Police, Gazipur Metropolitan Police, and the Airport Armed Police Battalion. The police department has also formed an industrial police unit, Rangpur Range, Range Reserve Force (RRF) of Rangpur, Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI), two Security Protection Battalions, 30 In-service Training Centres, Tourist Police, and Naval Police unit. It also set up a number of new police stations and police investigation centres by creating a number of posts. Members of the Bangladesh Police play a crucial role in maintaining peace and enforcing law and order. Currently, there are about 212,000 police personnel.
Forensic Lab to open in Rajshahi Rafiul Islam The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is going to launch a state-of-the-art forensic laboratory in Rajshahi for examining evidences, detecting crimes and identifying criminals in Rajshahi and Rangpur regions. The laboratory has been set up in a four-storey building at Rajshahi Police Lines and Inspector General of Police Mohammad Javed Patwary is expected to inaugurate it on February 3. “After inauguration, evidences of cases with Rajshahi and Rangpur metropolitans and ranges police can be tested there. They do not need to come to Dhaka anymore,” said Shaikh Nazmul Alam, deputy inspector general of CID’s Forensic Division. “Earlier, it took a long time to get laboratory reports and this delayed investigations, and sometimes evidence would be damaged,” said another CID official, adding that the lab will expedite investigations in these regions. Initially, a 40-member team, led by an additional superintendent of police, will be deployed at the lab. The lab in Rajshahi is the third of its kind in the country, with the other two in Dhaka and Chattogram. CID officials said such labs play a significant role in examining important evidences to solve criminal cases. But sending evidences from one division to another requires time, leading to delays. The lab in Rajshahi will reduce hassle, they said. “The laboratory is well-equipped with highly specialised and sophisticated equipment of international standards. It is competent to carry out any chemical examination and documentation,” Rumana Akhter, special superintendent of CID’s Forensic Division, told The Daily Star. The officials further said there would be a “ballistics section” to examine arms and explosives and separate sections for inspecting forgeries and counterfeit notes. A special crime scene unit has been added to the lab to collect evidence from the scene of crime. There will also be finger and foot print sections to match prints collected, a handwriting analysis and photography sections to accelerate investigations. Its chemical laboratories will help uncover the presence of intoxicants in dead bodies, even those dug up from graves. It can also be used to test explosives or acid to find out how they were made, CID officials said. https://www.thedailystar.net/backpage/news/forensic-lab-open-rajshahi-1857739
