Police officers across the Bangladeshi capital are wearing women’s clothes in a bid to catch criminals targeting females on the city’s streets.

According to officials, Dhaka male officers have been wearing burkas to help to catch muggers, bag snatchers and other criminals on the city streets.

“We took this unusual move because of rising crime in the city and it is working,” said deputy police commissioner Imtiaz Hossain.

“In the past four days, we have arrested some 60 wanted muggers who have been targeting our officers thinking they are women civilians.”
