The Posts and Telecommunications Division has sent Sudhangshu Shekhar Bhadra, director general (DG) of the postal department, on forced leave as primary investigation found evidence of corruption against him.

A notice was issued in this regard on Tuesday which will be effective from Wednesday and will remain in force until further notice.

According to the notice, several allegations have been brought against Sudhangshu and evidence of corruption was found against him. As a result, concerned authorities decided to send him on forced leave.

Earlier, on September 1, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) interrogated the DG at ACC headquarters on allegations of irregularities and corruption in the procurement for government projects.

The DG denied all allegations against him and also refused to answer the queries of journalists.

However, the commission found the DG was involved in money laundering and amassed illegal wealth.

According to ACC sources, Sudhangshu Shekhar Bhadra was supposed to supply 8,000 to 8,500 laptops and other equipment to entrepreneurs across the country. Apparently in most cases he did not deliver them, and has no vouchers to prove that he did.

The national anti-graft commission also found that in order to avoid lawsuits and disputes, the DG registered his wealth in the names of relatives instead of in his own name.
