Alleged mastermind of question paper leak traceless
Bangladesh Bank official Abu Zafar Majumder aka Rubel, who was allegedly involved with question paper leaks in bank recruitment and public university admission tests, has been traceless since April 4. Abu Zafar, an assistant director of Bangladesh Bank (BB), has not been heard from since he left his office on April 4. On April 5, Abu Zafar's wife informed the general manager of the bank that her husband was ill and would not be able to join work. He did not join the office even after the weekend (Friday, April 6 and Saturday, April 7). Detectives are assuming that the Bangladesh Bank official went into hiding after reports of his involvement were published in the media. Two other people involved with the leaks--Sonali Bank's IT Officer Mohammad Curzon, and an upazila election official Pulokesh Das Bachchu—were also traceless. Recently, DMP's Detective Branch (DB) of Police have detained 10 people from different areas of Dhaka for their alleged involvement with the question leaks. During the interrogation, the detainees disclosed the names of people behind the leaks. Abu Zafar, Curzon and Pulokesh's names came up during the interrogation. Detective Branch (north) ADC Md Golam Saqlain said: "We have come to know the names of the main culprits and have also identified them. We are trying to arrest them." After visiting the Bangladesh Bank's office on Sunday (April 8), it was found that Abu Zafar did not inform the authorities of the bank about his absence at work. He had last visited office on April 4, but since then none of the officials and colleague of the bank were in contact with him.

An official of Bangladesh Bank's Financial Institutions and Markets Department said: "We come to know about his involvement with the question paper leaks through an online media but he has not told us anything regarding it. "He did not come to work on Thursday (April 5) and Sunday (April 8). However, his wife had called us from an unknown number on Thursday (April 5) and informed us about his illness." "When we called back in the same number, the person who answered the call informed us that the number belonged to a shop," the official added. The Bank official said: "Apart from this, his personal phone number is also switched off." Regarding Abu Zafar's involvement with the leaks, the official said: "We will not take any steps until his involvement is proven. It is possible that his name was purposely being dragged in the matter." However, the Financial Institutions and Markets department official said: "The bank authorities will take action against him if he is found guilty." About Abu Zafar's involvement with the leaks, bank's spokesperson Debashish Chakraborty said: "He [Abu Zafar] has not taken leave but yet he is absent at work. This is an unauthorized leave. "Bangladesh Bank will take action against him after the charges are proven." It has been found that even Curzon has not been in touch with his family and friends, and his mobile phone was also found switched off. Requesting anonymity, Curzon's friend said the Sonali Bank official studied mathematics from Dhaka College and currently, he holds the post IT officer of the bank's Sreemangal branch. Stating that Curzon is from Narsingdi's Manohar upazila, the friend said he (Curzon) had been collecting smart devices for the question leaks. The friend claimed that he knew about Curzon's misdeeds but had no idea that he would be involved in such a big incident--leaks of recruitment tests question papers. Family members are worried as Curzon has stopped contacting them and all his mobile phone numbers were switched off. This article was first published on bangaltribune.com
