Sayma Hasan, executive magistrate and assistant commissioner (Land) of Monirampur in Jessore, has been withdrawn for punishing three elderly men to hold their ears with their hands. 

Confirming the information, Public Administration Secretary Sheikh Yusuf Harun on Saturday said that AC land Sayma Hasan has been directed to be attached to the office of the Divisional Commissioner.

The secretary added that the next measure would be taken after investigations after the vacations. In addition, UNO has been instructed to go to the home of the abused old men and ask for apologies. 

A mobile court led by Sayma Hasan conducted drives in different areas in the upazila on Friday afternoon. 

During their drive, the mobile court punished three elderly men including a van driver and a vegetable vendor in Chinatola Bazar for not using masks. The executive magistrate also captured a photo of the punishment in public.

The photo went viral on social media and sparked huge criticism at night.
