Put militants, terrorists in shackles while producing before courts: DMP


In the wake of recent escape of two death-row militants from their custody at Dhaka court, police recommended the prison authorities to put the militants, high-profile prisoners convicted in multiple cases in shackles during their transport to and from the court.

Confirming the matter to BSS, Deputy Commissioner Jasim Uddin of Dhaka Metropolitan Police's (DMP)  prosecution wing said they have sent a letter to the prison authorities in this regard, reports BSS.

"Incidents of escape by convicts have taken place while they were produced before court as they were not put on shackles. It would have been possible to thwart such incidents if they were in shackles. We have sent a letter to prison authorities to take steps in this regard," the police official said.

The police authorities also called upon the prison authorities to take steps in transporting the militants, high-profile prisoners convicted in multiple cases, on separate prison vans.

Death-row convicts Abu Siddique Sohel and Moinul Hasan Shamim, members of the banned militant outfit Ansar-al Islam, were whisked away by their associates spraying chemicals on police eyes at the Dhaka Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) court arena on November 20.
