The authorities acting through the Local Government Division (LGD) on Monday issued a letter to the Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) calling, after weeks of dithering, for enforcement of a strict lockdown in the capital’s Wari area.
Three outer roads and four inner roads were recommended to be brought under lockdown, said a notification from the Ministry.
Earlier on June 22, Health Services Department of Health and Family Welfare Ministry announced Ward-41 of Dhaka city, covering Wari, as ‘Red Zone.’
Tipu Sultan Road, Jahangir Road, Dhaka-Sylhet Highway (Joykali Temple to Baldha Garden) in the outer road and Lalmini road, Hare road, War road, Rankin Street and Nawab Street in inner Wari were recommended to be put under strict lockdown.
DSCC has been urged to put the Wari area under lockdown according to Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) issued by LGD on Monday.
