Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) today said they did not give any instruction to the house owners to evict their bachelor tenants.
“We have just asked the house owners to keep detail information about the tenants,” said Masudur Rahman, deputy commissioner (media and publication) of DMP.
“We want to ensure overall security for all,” he said while talking to reporters at the media centre of the DMP today.
According to the DMP instruction, the house owners have to submit detail information of their tenants to respective police station.
However, it is up to the house owners to whom they will rent out their house to, he said.
