Inspector General of Police (IGP) Benazir Ahmed on Tuesday said Police will not allow any group to use public sentiment for their benefit over the ongoing debate on Bangabandhu's sculpture issue.
"If any group tries to take advantage of the sensitive issue we will nip the conspiracy in the bud," he said while speaking at the introduction event of the new operational gear - tactical belts - for police at the Rajarbagh Police Auditorium.
During his remark, he said that the police authority has started working to clean the image of the agency.
"We have already started working on the allegations of corruption and abuse against police and we will make sure to win this war."
"Police force is not a sector for corruption," he further said, adding, "I publicly call on officials to leave their job or abstain from joining if they wish to commit corruption," he added.
Responding to a question from reporters, Benazir Ahmed said that the police station cannot be the place where extrajudicial killings are planned rather here the work is done to ensure the public protection and peace.
"However, we are working on the complaints against the police station brutality."
The IGP today inaugurated the new police operational gear 'Tactical Belt'. The six-chamber tactical belt will carry a pistol, handcuffs, extra magazines, expandable baton, water pot, torchlight, and wireless communicator.
This will allow police officials in the field and on operational duties to keep both of their hands free.
Mentioning that the police in the developed countries do not use heavy weapons on routine duty, IGP Benazir Ahmed said, "To to do the same we will initially introduce it in Dhaka and Chattogram from Wednesday."
He further added that this new gear will move the wireless to the belt, where it will have a microphone attached to it.
