Security measures have been strengthened at police stations under DMP's Motijheel and Wari divisions in the capital.
Additional police members with light machine guns (LMG) and Chinese rifles have installed the security posts.
Motijheel division DC Syed Nurul Islam confirmed media about the matter on Tuesday.
He said police personnel are discharging duties round the clock at light machine gun posts made with sand bags at Motijheel, Sabujbagh, Khilgaon, Paltal Model, Rampura, Mugda and Shahjahanpur police stations.
"These check posts have been set up as additional security measures considering current situation," said Nurul Islam.
Earlier on April 8, light machine gun (LMG) posts have been set up at all six police stations in Sylhet city in the wake of attacks on different police stations and vandalism there.
The move came following the Hefazat-e-Islam's countrywide violence and arson attack at police stations last month.
