The US embassy in Dhaka has recently issued an alert ahead of general polls and asked its citizens to remain vigilant in Dhaka and other cities across Bangladesh.

The US embassy on its website on Sunday said, “The next general election is anticipated to occur before or during January 2024, and political party rallies and other election-related activities have already commenced.  Political rallies and demonstrations may be held with increasing frequency or intensity as the general election draws nearer.”

“US citizens should practice vigilance and remember that demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence.  You should avoid demonstrations and exercise caution in the vicinity of any large gatherings.  Review personal security plans; remain aware of your surroundings, including local events; and monitor local news stations for updates,” it added.
