No human-hauler to run in city: DMP chief


Dhaka, September 04: Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia on Thursday said no human-hauler, locally named as Leguna, will be allowed to ply the streets of the capital city Dhaka.“Serious traffic problems are created on the city streets due to the plying of such vehicles which are also the main causes of road accidents,” the DMP commissioner said while addressing a press conference organised at its media centre on occasion of the month-long traffic management programme.

He also said a large number of Leguna are carrying people illegally on Dhaka streets though these human-haulers do not have any route permit.

Such vehicles can only ply the roads outside the city like the 300 Feet or in Bosila areas, said Asaduzzaman Mia.
