Six allegations including verbal abuse, misbehaviour and threat were brought against the chairman

Faruk Imrul Kayesh, chairman of Aditmari upazila council, was suspended after the Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) brought allegations against him of verbal abuse and threat.

The LGRD Ministry issued a notification in this regard on Monday.

Besides, LGRD Ministry on the same day issued a show-cause notice to the suspended chairman asking him why would he not be withdrawn from his post, and sought a reply within seven working days, reports our Lalmonirhat Correspondent Moazzem Hossain.

The notice also says that truth has been found in the allegations brought up against Faruk.

According to the notification that informed the suspension, punitive action was taken following the written complaint against Faruk by 18 officials, including Aditmari UNO Muhammad Mansur Uddin.

Six allegations including verbal abuse, misbehaviour and threat were brought against the chairman.

On November 12, Faruk demanded his share from the VGD and maternal allowance at a coordination meeting with UNO Mansur.

As the UNO refused, Faruk left the meeting. Later, he along with his associates swooped on UNO office and tried to remove the close-circuit camera.

Obstructed, Faruk then verbally abused the UNO and threatened to assault him.

Later, the UNO and 17 other officials of the UNO office sent a written complaint to the deputy commissioner seeking action against Chairman Faruk.

On November 24, Abdul Wahab Bhuiya, divisional commissioner of Rangpur, visited the spot as a representative of the Ministry.

Meanwhile, UNO Mansur also lodged a general diary at Aditmari police station seeking security for himself and his family.

Additional police have been deployed in and around the upazila council premises after the incident.
