The government on Thursday suspended Md Refayet Ullah, mayor of Savar municipality, regarding responsibility for the Savar building collapse of April 24 which claimed at least 433 lives.

State Minister for Local Government Ministry Jahangir Kabir Nanak and LG secretary Abu Alam Md Shahid Khan on Thursday told reporters that the internal probe committee of LG division had found the mayor’s guilt regarding the approval of the Rana Plaza building.

“We have taken the decision to suspend the mayor for his responsibility. We have also decided to send a show-cause notice to the concerned ward commissioner Habib for his responsibility as he recommended the municipality authority to approve the design of the building,” Nanak told reporters.
