The commissioner, in a letter to the IGP on May 30, said Joint Commissioner Imam Hossain is a corrupt officer
Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Md Shafiqul Islam has requested the inspector general of police (IGP) to transfer a joint commissioner from the unit for offering him a bribe.
The commissioner, in a letter on May 30 to the IGP, said Joint Commissioner (logistics) Md Imam Hossain is a corrupt officer, and there are graft allegations against him over various purchases of DMP.
"He (joint commissioner) even offered the commissioner to receive a percentage from procurement of DMP. And, that is why, I understand, he should not be working in DMP," the letter said.
The DMP commissioner, moreover, requested the IGP to take steps immediately for the transfer of the joint commissioner.
When asked, Police Headquarters' Assistant Inspector General (media) Md Sohel Rana said the letter is yet to reach the headquarters.
He said: "Every organization has some administrative issues and appropriate administrative and professional measures are taken in these cases. The issue which is being discussed or heard has not yet reached the headquarters.
"However, police headquarters will deal with the issue with due professionalism [after receiving the letter]," he added.
