The Bangladesh Police have launched an app and started taking applications for movement passes that will allow citizens to stay outside for up to three hours during the strict nationwide lockdown from April 14 to April 21. Following the launch of the app on Tuesday afternoon, as many as 125,000 movement pass applications were submitted in the first hour and around 15,000 applications were being submitted every minute at one point, said Md Sohel Rana, assistant inspector general at Police Headquarters.

Meanwhile, Inspector General of Police Benazir Ahmed, during the app’s launch event at Dhaka’s Rajarbagh Police Lines, instructed people not to move around outside without reason from Wednesday.
“We do not want to see anyone on the roads and outside the home except for emergencies from April 14. Please follow government rules willingly and we will not be rude to anyone,” he added. The IGP continued: “We have to control the second wave of Covid-19 like we did last year, and to that end, we have to refrain from unnecessary movement. Thousands of people left Dhaka last year and similarly many people have been leaving the city for the last two days, which is unwise.” The police chief also urged people living in villages to stay home during the weeklong lockdown and follow government directives to help curb the spread of coronavirus.

Who will get Police Lockdown Movement Passes?
A movement pass will be required to step out of homes during the lockdown in case of an emergency or official work such as receiving the Covid-19 vaccine, Covid-19 test, grocery shopping, medicine purchase, getting medical attention, job, agriculture, goods transport, wholesale/retail sell, funeral, business and several other necessities under other categories, according to the instructions given in the app.
Traders and employees of emergency goods transportation services, businessmen and job holders would be given movement passes after verification, said a Police Headquarters official. A pass can be used for one-way movement and another pass has to be acquired for the subsequent return.
An individual seeking a movement pass has to provide his name, phone number, date of birth, destination details, valid identification (NID, passport, driving licence), and the reason for going outside. The police will then issue an online pass after receiving the information and verifying it.
