Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Md Shafiqul Islam has said they are embarrassed over the unprofessional conduct of Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC) Golam Saklain Shithil with actress Porimoni.

“The immoral task the officer committed is a minor offence as per the law concerned. But he ignored service rules and disciple. Departmental action will be taken against him,” he said.
On June 14, Porimoni filed the case against businessman Nasir U Mahmood and some other men with Savar Model Police Station, alleging that the accused attempted to rape and kill her at Dhaka Boat Club on June 9.
