The DMP commissioner, moreover, requested the IGP to take steps immediately for the transfer of the joint commissioner
The Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) has transferred its Joint Commissioner (logistics) Md Imam Hossain, who was earlier accused of offering bribes to the DMP commissioner, to the Public Order Management (POM) department.
The transfer was made in an office order signed by DMP Commissioner Md Shafiqul Islam on June 9, said the DMP news portal on Tuesday.
Earlier on May 30, DMP Commissioner Md Shafiqul Islam requested the inspector general of police (IGP) to transfer its Joint Commissioner Md Imam Hossain from the Logistics Unit as JC Imam offered him bribe.
The commissioner, in a letter to the IGP, said JC Md Imam Hossain was a corrupt officer and there were allegations of graft against him over various purchases by the DMP.
"He (joint commissioner) even offered the commissioner a percentage from the procurement activities of DMP. And, that is why, I understand, he should not be working in DMP," the letter said.
The DMP commissioner, moreover, requested the IGP to take steps immediately for the transfer of the joint commissioner.
Meanwhile, two more JC level officers of DMP were also transferred by the office order.
The order said Joint Commissioner (Protection and Diplomatic Security) Moha Abdul Malek has been given additional duty at the POM, while Joint Commissioner (Transport) Moinul Haque has been given additional responsibilities as joint commissioner (logistics).
