Deputy Secretary AKM Rezaul Karim, former director of Jatiya Grantha Kendra, has been sent on compulsory retirement as he was found guilty in a rape case, reports UNB.
Public Administration issued a notification signed by its senior secretary Mohammad Mezbah Uddin Chowdhury in this regard on Wednesday.
The order will come into effect immediately in public interest, the notification said.
A chargesheet was submitted against Rezaul in a case filed under the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act 2000 while he was director of the Grantha Kendra.
On June 25 in 2019, he was suspended.
He later threatened the plaintiff to withdraw the case and another case was filed over threat and physical torture, said the notification.
