Road Transport and Highway Division today released Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) Chairman Moshiar Rahman from his post.
Dr Kamrul Ahsan, a joint secretary of the division, was given additional charge of BRTA chairman.
The division issued two separate office orders in this regard.
Public Administration Ministry on December 17 last year transferred Moshiar Rahman to the same ministry as an officer on special duty (OSD). The division today released him from his post after a legal proceeding over the issue is over, a ministry official said.
Meanwhile, Kamrul Ahsan tonight told this correspondent that he will take charge.
