According to the case, the government incurred a loss of Tk 9.74 crore as the former mayor took steps aimed at making himself and some others financially benefited.
The complainant said, by paying wage to illegally appointed workers beyond the government approved posts of 199 workers under master role during the period of July 2002 to October 2007, the former mayor caused the government to incur loss which is equal to the same amount.
