Ban on public movement near HSC centres
The Dhaka Metropolitan Police or DMP has imposed a ban on the movement of anyone except Higher Secondary Certificate students and exam officials, within 200 yards of test centres.
The DMP announced the new step in a statement on Saturday, two days prior to the HSC exams. The HSC and equivalent exams are scheduled to begin on Monday.
A total of 1,311,457 examinees from 8,943 institutions will take the exam at 541 test centres across the country.
The circular states that the public was completely barred from travelling within 200 yards of test centres in order to ensure “proper and lawful” exams, according to DMP Commissioner Md Asaduzzaman.
The order will remain in force until the exams end.
