Inspector General of Police (IGP) Benazir Ahmed has given four oxygen concentrators to Dhaka Reporters Unity (DRU), the largest organisation of professional reporters in Bangladesh.
The police chief handed over the oxygen concentrators to DRU President Rafiqul Islam Azad and general secretary Reaz Chowdhury from his office at Police Headquarters on Tuesday evening.
The arrangement of oxygen concentrators is a new addition to DRU measures to protect the health of its members and their families in the wake of Covid-19 pandemic, the organisation said in a press release on Wednesday evening.
Each remote controlled oxygen concentrator is able to automatically generate 8 litres of oxygen at a time.
The DRU will soon let its members know how they will be able to receive the services.
The DRU president and general secretary expressed gratitude to the IGP for standing beside the working reporters during the outbreak.
Senior police officials were present during handing over the electronic devices to DRU.
