Chief engineer of Department of Shipping Nazmul Hasan suspended from his office Sunday (April 15) three day after being caught red-handed while taking bribe from a shipping company in Dhaka.
He was earlier sent to jail after being produced before Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court by Anti Corruption Commission (ACC). The court denied his bail plea and ordered to send him to jail.
A team led by ACC official Nasim Anwar arrested Nazmul Hasan in Segunbagicha Thursday evening (April 12). He was caught red-handed while taking Tk 5 lakh bribe money.
