Bangladesh Police has launched an app named “Movement Pass” for citizens, who will need to go out of home for emergencies during the weeklong lockdown to be imposed from April 14.

Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dr Benazir Ahmed inaugurated the app at Bangladesh Police Auditorium in city’s Razarbagh, reports BSS.

The police chief at the program said citizens, who will have to come out of home during the lockdown, have to collect the pass from the app as it is being launched to curb unnecessary movement of the people on the streets.

“Any citizen can easily collect the pass by submitting a couple of information on the app,” he said.

Dr Benazir Ahmed emphasized on national unity to tackle the second wave of Covid-19, saying, “The government has already taken different initiatives, but there is no alternative to personal awareness. We all should sincerely follow the health safety guideline.”

Any citizen can apply for the pass by logging on to website. First the applicant have to give an active mobile phone number and following that, he/ she needs to give some information including starting point and destination and later he/she has to upload a photograph.

Based upon the information, he or she will be given the pass, which will have to be downloaded from the website.
