Authorities earlier turned a blind eye despite receiving several complaints against him

A photo of an upazila engineer from Comilla's Daudkandi caught red-handed while taking bribes from people has gone viral on social media.

Following this, engineer MS Anwarul Haque was transferred on Tuesday, Kamrul Islam Khan, the Daudkandi upazila nirbahi officer (UNO), confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune.

He said: "I have received two complaints against engineer MS Anwarul Haque. We have informed the higher authorities about the allegations. But he has been claiming his innocence.”

After this incident, Anwarul was transferred to Bahubal upazila in Habiganj. He could not be reached over the phone for comments.

The reassignment was ordered by Abdur Rashid Khan, chief engineer of the Local Government Engineering Department.

According to sources, Anwarul had been taking bribes from people since he joined the office. He used to create various obstacles in the implementation of several development projects under his management, if he was not offered money.

Service seekers and several union parishad chairmen submitted complaints against the engineer to the upazila administration and also raised the issue at the monthly coordination meetings of the upazila, but got no remedies until the photo went viral.
