However, all public transport services will remain suspended during this time. Deputy Commissioner (Mirpur division) Mostak Ahmed of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) said they had received instructions that anyone can enter or leave Dhaka in microbuses and private cars - that is, their own transport. There are checkposts to ensure that public transport remains barred and people are discouraged from using freight vehicles as passengers, the DC added. Chowdhury Abdullah Al-Mamun, director general of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) said RAB would take measures to ensure no public transport is in operation during the Eid holiday. Earlier on March 26, the government shut down public transport services, as a countrywide “general holiday” was declared to contain Covid-19 outbreak.
