Flying Fanush banned in Dhaka

Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) on Saturday (Jan 6) imposed ban on flying Fanush (paper lantern) in the capital city for the interest of security, local media reports said. A press release issued from the DMP says that the restriction on flying Fanush was imposed to avert any untoward incident.

The DMP said that the Fanush may cause fire incident or any other security threats. So they urged the city dwellers to avoid it.

The DMP also warned of taking legal action against those who will defy the police instruction.
