The Department of Shipping on Wednesday suspended its chief engineer AKM Fakhrul Islam, who was caught red-handed while taking a bribe at his Motijheel office, reports UNB.


Public relations officer of the department Jahangir Alam Khan said the action was taken against Fakhrul as he was arrested by an Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) team for corruption charges.
