Thakurgaon Sugar Mill has been accused of stealing mill equipment. A mill worker named Khokon has been suspended for being involved in the incident.
Sugar Mill GM (Administration) Saiful Islam confirmed the matter on Wednesday (February 2nd).
He said Khokon, a worker, was suspended on Monday (January 31st) for his alleged involvement in the theft of mill equipment. The matter is being investigated. The actual matter can be informed at the end of the investigation.
However, he expressed inability to know how much money was stolen.
Talking to the mill authorities, it is learned that while the sugarcane threshing activities were going on in the current season, a few days ago, others were seen stealing motors and other implements from the sugar mill factory while smuggling goods. When the matter was later brought to the notice of the officials, they inspected the spot and recovered the goods. After informing the senior officers about the matter, he directed to suspend him in the departmental system.
The mill workers were angry at such instructions and asked why only the mill workers would be dismissed. Of course, some official or other person is involved in this, otherwise he would not have got such courage. Therefore, they have requested to investigate the matter properly and take necessary action.
