Rajbari engineer withdrawn and attached to Dhaka office
The Bangladesh Water Development Board (BWDB) has suspended its executive engineer for Rajbari district for misconduct after a video of him assaulting an assistant engineer went viral on social media.
Abdul Ahad was suspended and attached to the office of the BWDB’s additional chief engineer in Dhaka on Wednesday.
Earlier, Md Rony, assistant engineer at the BWDB’s Rajbari office, accused Ahad of physically abusing him. He also made an allegation of an attempt on his life.
However, he refused to discuss the complaints with the media. “It is not a big issue. Either sir [Ahad] or I was in the wrong,” he told reporters after the incident came to light.
The CCTV footage in question shows Ahad in a room with another man. Then Rony enters the room and there is an altercation. At one point, Ahad gets off his chair and starts assaulting Rony.
Ahad could not be reached for comment.
