The recommendation to reappoint him came five days after he was rebuked by the High Court for his negligence in disconnecting sewerage lines in the Buriganga.

Meanwhile, engineer Waliullah Sikder, a member of the board, claimed that he was opposed to the proposal for Taqsem’s reappointment.

Taqsem A Khan was appointed managing director of Dhaka Wasa in 2009 and subsequently reappointed five times, despite allegations of corruption against him.
