Jail official transferred over FB post


Department of Prisons transferred one of its officials over Facebook post. The department took the action as a Facebook post of prison intelligence unit official Abid Ahmed Liton over Baishakh celebration drew severe criticism.      

Bangladesh Directorate of Prison's Assistant Inspector General of Prison Abdullah Al Mamun said departmental action also will be taken against the accused. Terming Baishakh as a Hindu culture, Liton on 13 April urged his Facebbok friends not to take part in Mangal Shobhajatra. Facebbok users lambasted the status of government employee. Although Liton removed the status, Department of Prisons came to know about the issue.

Assistant Inspector General of Prison Abdullah Al Mamun said Liton, who had been serving Dhaka office for last three years, was transferred to Narayanganj as deputy jailor.
