Abdul Motaleb Haoladar, executive engineer (civil) of Barishal City Corporation (BCC), has been suspended from July 29. Israil Hossain, chief executive officer of BCC, signed the suspension letter on Tuesday.
BCC public relations officer Belayet Hossain Bablu confirmed the incident yesterday, but did not divulge details.
Serniabat Sadiq Abdullah, after taking charge as BCC mayor last year, removed Haoladar from the post of acting superintending engineer and made him “officer on special duty”, following allegations of corruption and forgery in his BSc certificate in engineering. After some time, he was appointed as executive engineer of another section.
Sources said Motaleb was involved in corruption while distributing contracts and collecting bills during the tenure of mayor Ahsan Habib Kamal.
Anti-Corruption Commission has also launched an investigation on allegations against him.
