Department of Narcotics Control (DNC) need to arm their personnel with proper protection and level of firearms based on their ranks. Current situation demands them to carry fire-arms. Both for the success in operations & their own safety, said DNC GD Jamal Uddin Ahmed. A committee of 9 from DNC had prepared the follow up reports urging for equipping their personnel with firearms. They are requesting for, Short-guns for their cadets & revolver for the inspectors. The report mention of buying source, order, cost, and defends the necessity. The report information is currently in the verification stage. Then, it will be sent Ministry of Home Affairs by this Wednesday.
Jamal Uddin believes, Ministry of Home Affairs will allow them with the power to carry firearms & oblige them with supplied fire-arms. Since, there had been several missions. Where, DNC had to retreat, because the drug-smugglers were carrying dangerous firearms. This is diminishing efficiency & reputation.
