Dhaka, Apr 12: A team of Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has caught the acting chief engineer of the Department of Shipping (DoS) SM Nazmul Huq while he was taking bribe.

The ACC team, led by Director Nasim Anwar, detained Nazmul from a restaurant in Segunbagicha while he was taking Tk 500,000 in bribes from a shipping company, according to ACC spokesperson Pranab Kumar Bhattacharjee.

According to Anwar, Nazmul will be produced before the court on Friday and will seek remand for interrogation.

“The matter is really unfortunate and shame for the department. The ministry will take action including his suspension from service,” Jasim Uddin Sarker, acting director general of DoS told themorningbellbd.com.

On July 18, the ACC caught the then Department of Shipping chief engineer AKM Fakhrul Islam red-handed while taking bribe.
