Inspector General-Prisons Brig Gen Zakir Hassan was transferred yesterday, home ministry sources said.
"I've heard about the transfer, but haven't received any letter in this regard," Zakir said when contacted.
State Minister for Home Tanjim Ahmed Sohel last night told The Daily Star, "He [Brig Zakir] was in the post on deputation. He has been called back to the army on expiry of his tenure."
Zakir Hassan was appointed the IG-prisons on October 20, 2005.
