Nurse faces case for ‘violating service rules’

STAFF REPORTER
Nurse faces case for 
‘violating service rules’

The Department of Prisons has filed a case against diploma nurse Afzalur Rahman of Chuadanga district over seeking posting of his spouse, who is also a staff nurse of Mitford Hospital, allegedly violating the government service rules. The way the posting has been sought bypassing the proper authority, as the application was submitted before the home minister, has been described as an offence, sources said.

Rahman submitted his application to the home minister on April 27, when he was serving in Narsingdi Jail as a diploma nurse. At that time  house allocation was sought  for him to Narsingdi Jail super—but the jail super allegedly demanded of Tk 30,000 as bribe, Rahman stated.

The jail super allocated a house for a junior staff upon non-payment of bribe, he said in his application. Later, he was posted to Chuadanga from Narsingdi jail to hide the matter, he added.

He submitted the application to the home minister following a circular issued by the cabinet division on posting. The cabinet division issued the circular stating that if husband-wife do services under public department they may be posted in same organisation or nearest ones.

“I have submitted several applications to the proper authority—but they didn’t take any action in this regard.

Later, I submitted the application to the home minister stating via proper authority,” Afzalu Rahman told The Independent yesterday. The home ministry sent the application to the Department of Prisons with the recommendation of home minister to see the matter on humanitarian ground, the ministry sources said.

Ignoring the minister’s recommendation, the IG prisons issued a show-cause notice to Rahman after one month and later a departmental case was filed on November 14 for violating the service rules of the government.

“The matter is under trial—so we won’t make any comment in this matter,” DIG (admin) of the Department of Prisons Fazlul Haque told this correspondent. The High Court on October 24 issued a rule upon the Department of Prisons asking why the nurses and pharmacists are deprived from their rights and asked the prisons authority to submit their reply before the court.
