DMP terminates 10 policemen, suspends 18 after failing dope tests

The Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) has terminated 10 policemen and suspended 18 more after failing dope tests.

A total of 68 policemen – seven sub-inspectors, one sergeant, five assistant sub-inspectors, five nayeks, and 50 constables – have failed the tests till Sunday.

DMP Deputy Commissioner for Media and Public Relation Walid Hossain confirmed the information, reports UNB.

Also, allegations – including taking and selling drugs, falsely implicating people with it, and taking a bribe to show a lesser amount of recovered drugs – were made against 29 other policemen.

Earlier this year, DMP Commissioner Md Shafiqul Islam said: "All the suspected drug-addict policemen will have to take drug tests. If anyone is found positive, he will be sacked."

Shafiqul also said police personnel involved in drugs are already under intelligence surveillance.
