Jamalpur's former deputy commissioner Ahmed Kabir, who was made an officer on special duty (OSD) days after a leaked video showed him in a compromising situation with a female colleague last year, will not get any promotion during his service.
A gazette was published in this regard yesterday.
Secretary to the Ministry of Public Administration Sheikh Yusuf Harun told The Daily Star that Ahmed Kabir was punished following the incident in Jamalpur.
He will not be promoted in future and always will remain as deputy secretary, Harun said.
Ahmed Kabir, who was drawing salary in fifth grade under the 2015 national pay scale as deputy secretary, will now on get it in the last tier of the sixth grade.
He will remain in the same post and the salary will be almost half due to demotion, public administration sources said.
Ahmed Kabir was made OSD in August last year, days after a leaked video showed him in a compromising situation with a female colleague.
OSD is a post that rarely offers opportunity for work.
Two video clips from the incident went viral on Facebook. Media reports identified the man in it as the Jamalpur DC and the woman as a staffer at his office.
The room seen in the video clip was found to be inside the DC's office premises.
Speaking to journalists, Kabir at that time denied the allegations brought against him, calling it a "conspiracy".
