The Assistant Commissioner (Land) Sayeema Hasan for her “rogue behaviour” with two local elderly men in Monirampur Upazila in Jashore has been withdrawn, the Ministry of Public Administration has confirmed. he was withdrawn from Jashore and attached to the divisional commissioner’s office in Khulna, Shaikh Yusuf Harun, secretary at the ministry, told The Daily Star today.
In two photos, that have gone viral on social media, Sayeema Hasan, the erstwhile AC (land) in Jashore’s Monirampur upazila, is seen taking photos with her mobile phone of elderly men holding their ears. Yesterday at Chinetola kitchen market in Monirampur, Sayeema humiliated three men – one van puller, one vegetable vendor, and one bicycle rider who came to buy groceries – by making them hold their ears. The erstwhile AC was trying to ensure through a mobile court that people were practicing social distancing — enforced to stop the spread of coronavirus. The elderly men and several others were punished in the same way for not wearing masks, our correspondent reports quoting locals.
The government has closed down its offices across the country and urged everyone to remain at home barring an emergency in a bid to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus. The local administration is working with the army to ensure that everyone complies with the directive.
