He had to leave his job of Proshika as became quite unable to carry on his official duty.
As he served the NGO for a long time he owed a total of Tk 1,35,316 to Proshika, but the organisation paid him on Tk 50,000.
On January 13 of last year Kamrul Islam requested Proshika to pay his dues through a legal notice. But, later when he contacted Proshika authorites direcly they denied to pay his dues and moreover, they threatened him of death if he take any move to get the remaining money from the NGO.
