Barishal AL leader jailed for misappropriating govt rice

A mobile court on Friday sentenced Banaripara Upazila AL Vice-President Yusuf Ali to a six-month imprisonment for embezzling government rice.

Upazila Nirbahi Officer, also the executive magistrate, Sheikh Abdullah Sadid said they recovered 7,680kg government rice from a shop around 11am.

Seven intact sacks and 249 empty sacks were found there while the AL leader—present there– confessed to selling government rice by changing the sacks, the UNO added.

The administration has been taking action against people involved in smuggling government rice, said Barishal Deputy Commissioner SM Ajiar Rahman, adding that stern action will be taken in future.
