The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Chattogram zone officials yesterday arrested Azimul Kadar, upazila education officer of Fatikchhari upazila, for taking bribe from a primary school teacher.
Azimul was caught red-handed while taking bribe from Fatikchhari Government Primary School teacher Taslima Akhter, at his office around 3pm, said ACC Deputy Director Lutful Kabir.
Taslima filed a complaint with the ACC after Azimul took Tk 5,000 bribe from her, promising to facilitate a transfer.
Azimul then demanded Tk 10,000 more from her and Taslima notified the anti-graft officials about it.
The ACC officials conducted a drive at the office and arrested Azimul while taking the money from Taslima, said Lutful Kabir.
“We will hand him over to police after filing a case with Fatikchhari police station,” he added.
