A government official in Narayanganj was suspended today after a video clip of him taking bribe from people in his office went viral in social media.
Esahaq Ali Mondal, acting sub-registrar in Narayanganj’s Araihazar, was suspended as he was seen in the video taking bribes while on duty, which is illegal and a clear violation of the norm, according to a notification of the government’s Registry Department.
The authorities also issued a show cause notice seeking explanation from him in seven days in this regard.
Esahaq was filmed on Thursday, March 22, receiving a stash of notes from people in his office for signing their files.
This footage, what appears to be a video shot with a phone camera, went viral on social media and YouTube since Thursday.
