ACC quizzes officials, college teachers
The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) yesterday interrogated seven teachers of Chittagong College and 13 Bangladesh Railway (BR) East Zone officials for their alleged involvement in doctoring the tabulation sheet of the BR's recruitment examinations.
The teachers were Prof Hajarat Ali, Assistant Professors Alamgir Hossain, Subhash Das, Nurul Bashar and Prasenjit Paul and Lecturers Jahangir Alam and Iqbal Bahar Chowdhury.
They had prepared the tabulation sheet after examining the written papers of the recruitment tests.
According to sources at ACC, Golam Kibria, a suspended senior welfare officer at the BR's East Zone, allegedly lobbied the teachers for changing the main tabulation sheet on June 6.
Kibria requested the teachers to sign on another tabulation sheet which he prepared according to his own style saying that the tabulation sheet the teachers had prepared went missing, the sources said.
The BR authorities suspended Kibria after the mater was disclosed.
Meanwhile, the ACC launched an investigation into the matter.
ACC's Deputy Director Abu Sayeed and two other Assistant Directors Rashedur Reza and Majibur Rahman interrogated the 7 teachers and 13 BR officials.
Earlier on Monday, the ACC investigators quizzed nine teachers of Chittagong Muslim High School and eight BR officials in this connection.
