Mohammad Anwarul Azim, a land official of Chattogram Wasa, has been suspended for giving "incorrect" information to the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).
Chattogram Wasa Managing Director Engineer AKM Fazlullah confirmed the matter to The Business Standard on Wednesday.

A letter, signed by Engineer AKM Fazlullah, managing director of Chattogram Wasa, was issued on 15 September, issuing Azim's suspension.
