Biman’s recruitment tests for several posts suspended over question leak
Authorities of Biman Bangladesh Airlines today (October 21, 2022) suspended written tests for recruitment in several posts at the national flag carrier after the question papers got leaked ahead of the tests.
Biman's Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Zahid Hossain confirmed the development to The Daily Star.
Meanwhile, detectives have detained five junior officials and staffers of Biman in this connection.
A briefing in this regard will be held at DMP Media Centre tomorrow at 11:30am, Md Harun-or-Rashid, additional commissioner at Detective Branch of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, confirmed in a text message.
"The tests were suspended before those began. Candidates will be informed of a new test date via text message later," the Biman CEO said.
"Detectives are conducting investigation on how the question papers got leaked. It is a criminal offence, and if any Biman staffer is involved in this connection then punitive measures will be taken against them," he also said.
The national flag carrier has formed an enquiry committee to investigate the incident, sources at Biman said.
Led by Chief Financial Officer Md Naoshad, the committee has been asked to submit its report within five days.
