Save yourself the trip to the local police station. You can now file a GD online
Filing a general diary is usually a very tedious activity. The perceived stigma of the process scares off many people. And as such, a lot of crimes go unreported. But there’s an alternative you should know about.
DMP had introduced a system for filing GD’s online earlier this year. They are now pushing for the public to implement it on a more regular basis. Through this system, you can submit a statement by filling up an online form on this web address: http://gd.police.gov.bd/index
Needless to say, this is a very welcome step. We refrain from filing GDs due to apprehension of the circumstances surrounding the process. Many a person has an unpleasant tale about filing a complaint. This online procedure takes out the personal interaction factor that we’re apprehensive of and provides a far more prompt solution.
It is to be mentioned that as of now, the process only covers lost and found cases. That means you can file an online GD for cases like a lost phone, ID, and other personal accessories and petty theft.
This is more convenient than it sounds; as many organizations such as universities require a GD filed before they replace a lost ID card. Therefore, the online GD system makes this a whole lot simpler.
