The government has temporarily suspended SM Fazlul Haque, Superintendent of Police of RAB-5, and Mohammad Nazmul Hasan, Rajshahi Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner, on Tuesday.

The suspension order was issued on Tuesday in two separate circulars signed by Mostafa Kamal Uddin, senior secretary of Public Security Division of the Home Ministry.

Fazlul Haque and Nazmul Hasan have been told in the notification that it is necessary and appropriate to refrain from government work in the public interest. That is why they were suspended from government service in accordance with the provisions of Section 39 (1) of the Government Employees Act, 2018.

The circular said that during this period, they will remain attached to the Police Directorate and will be entitled to allowance as per the rules.

However, the notification did not mention any reason for the suspension.
