The holy Shab-e-Barat will be observed on Thursday night.
The DMP enforced the ban under the Section 28 of the Dhaka Metropolitan Police Ordinance-1976 (Ord. No. III of 1976), with a view to maintaining the sanctity of the night so that it can be observed peacefully, according to a DMP news release on Tuesday.
The restriction will come into force from 6:00pm Thursday to 6:00am Friday.
