Habib Uddin Ahmed, managing director of Barapukuria Coal Mining Company Ltd (BCMCL), has been suspended for his suspected connection with the disappearance of 144,000 tons of coal from the mine.

Bangladesh Oil, Gas and Mineral Corporation, commonly known as Petrobangla, issued the suspension order on Thursday, Petrobangla Chairman Abul Mansur Md Faizullah confirmed to UNB.

Habib Uddin had been withdrawn from the coal mine company after the news of the coal disappearance broke out on Sunday.

The massive irregularity came to light when a team from Bangladesh Power Development Board (PDB) visited the coal mine and found that there was no adequate reserve of coal to run the Barapukuria thermal power plant.

After an official investigation, the stock was found to have a shortage of 144,000 tons of coal.

Petrobangla formed a three-member committee to investigate the disappearance. The Anti-Corruption Commission also formed a three-member probe committee on Monday to look into the matter.

On Tuesday, a case was filed against 19 BCMCL officials, including Habib Uddin.
