Citycell CEO besieged by unpaid employees

About 150 Citycell employees started the demonstration around 2:30pm demanding that their salaries from July be paid immediately.

The Citycell CEO, Mehboob Chowdhury, was scheduled to brief media on his commitment regarding the overdue payment around 4:30pm. However, as he did not appear for the press conference, reporters discovered that he was confined in his office by the agitating employees.

The employees demand that the management clear all dues including salaries, bonuses and overtime by November 27. They were set to start hunger strike from Wednesday if the CEO had not given concrete assurance of meeting the demands, said Mehjabeen Tomali, a Citycell executive.

A total of 430 people were employed as permanent staff when Citycell was shut down by telecom regulator BTRC. Most of the employees did not get paid in the last five months.

Earlier, a Citycell employee had said they were asked to resign if they wanted their due payments to be cleared.
