Police allege bid to demotivate them with distorted, old photos


The Police Headquarters brought the allegation in a statement on Monday, saying the culprits were using photos of incidents, for which steps had been taken against members of the force, to stir anger among the people. Some photos of police action on protesters during a violent blockade programme of the BNP-Jamaat-e-Islami coalition in 2011 were also being “photoshopped” and shared, the statement said. It came after intervention by high-ups following criticism of public shaming or caning by the police of people who defied instructions to stay at home and take precautionary measures. It claimed there has been no repeat of such actions, but some “news media were publishing reports on the old allegations in a manner to leave the members of the public with the impression these actions were going on”. “The members of the public are easily believing these and sharing them in anger,” the statement said.
