Terming the recent credit card forgery a great threat to financial discipline, Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Md Asaduzzaman Miah on Saturday stressed united efforts of all to check the recurrence of such incidents.

“Bangladesh Bank, other banks, financial institutions, intelligence and law enforcement agencies have to work together to prevent such
credit card forgery,” he said.

The DMP Commissioner came up with the remarks replying to a question on the sidelines of annual sports and prize giving ceremony of
Rajarbagh Police Lines School and College on Rajarbagh Police Lines Parade ground.

The DMP Commissioner stressed the need for building capacity and enactment of laws to take stern action against offenders involved in
such scam.

He said such credit card forgery occurred for the first time in Bangladesh, in which local people, expatriate Bangladeshis and
international vested quarters were involved.

Detectives have already arrested three city bank officials -- Moksed Al alias Maksud, Rezaul Karim alias Sahin and Refaz Ahmed alias Rony, along with one Poland national, Piotr Szczepan Mazurek alias Thomas, from Gulshan on February 22 in connection with the forgery.

On February 12, United Commercial Bank (UCB) authorities filed a case with Banani Police Station as at least Tk 1.26 lakh was
misappropriated through ATM card forgery recently. Later, the cases were transferred to DB police.
 
About the activities of militants in the country, the DMP Commissioner reiterated that their activities are now under control as anti-militancy drives are going on.

A large number of militants and their associates have already been arrested as well as huge explosives, handmade bombs and grenades, and firearms by the time, he added.

Besides, he said, police have almost unearthed the militants’ financers, patrons and work plans. “We’re alert and ready to prevent their any evil attempt.”
