The DMP crash programme on gearing up case investigation in a division has brought down the number of pending cases significantly.

The success of the division has prompted the Dhaka Metropolitan Police to take the programme in other divisions.

The DMP authorities took the programme in Mirpur division out of its eight divisions in November 2007.

‘Now each officer of the police station has a single digit cases and the number was more than 15 before the programme,’ DMP commissioner Naim Ahmed told journalists after presiding over the monthly crime review meeting at Razarbagh in the city on Wednesday.

Additional commissioner, joint commissioners, deputy commissioners, additional deputy commissioners, assistant commissioners and officers-in-charge of all the 33 police stations were present in the meeting. Under the programme, each of the investigation officers has to complete investigation of at least six cases a month, he said.

Naim said there were 6,760 pending cases on December 1, 2007 and 1,908 cases were filed in the month while the police completed investigation into 2,552 cases bringing down the number of pending cases to 6,112 at the month end.

Of the pending cases, 4,997 are under the DMP while the rest 1,115 remain with the criminal investigation department, anti-corruption commission, department of narcotics control and the Rapid Action Battalion.

About the snatching incidents, he acknowledged that such activities were still on and the authorities had formed a special squad in each of the 33 police stations to combat it.

‘The team members will on duty in their respective police station areas to check mugging,’ he said.
