Chittagong district Superintendent of Police AKM Hafiz Akhtar has expressed his resentment over the call drops of the mobile phone operator Grameenphone.
He brought up the issue at a function organised by the district administration at Chittagong Circuit House on Thursday.
Akhtar made the reference to Grameenphone’s call drops while speaking on a case of theft from a bKash account with the help of a fraudulently registered biometric SIM card of another mobile-phone operator, Robi.
“Call drops are a recent phenomenon. Grameenphone is dropping calls at an alarming rate,” he said.
He added that Grameenphone’s call-drops had assumed staggering proportions over the past few months. “This is no small matter. There has been no improvement despite the high-ups of the mobile phone operator being informed.”
However, Akhtar told bdnews24.com after the event about Grameenphone’s assurances of resolving the problem by December.
Many police personnel in Chittagong and elsewhere in the country use Grameenphone mobile numbers.
The officer said, in case of illegal VoIP calls, the numbers of the government mobile phone operator Teletalk were mostly used.
He urged mobile phone operators to stress security while opting for digitisation.
He cited cases of hacking, including that of Bangladesh Bank accounts, to emphasise the importance of safety.
He also spoke about improving government services and putting an end to graft.
