On Thursday, National Sports Council Secretary Masud Karim told Daily Bangladesh that Golam Morshed had been removed from the post of general secretary of the tennis federation's ad-hoc committee for misconduct and discipline issues. The Secretary of the National Sports Council will serve as the additional secretary to the general secretary and new committee will be announced very soon.

About half a hundred players from eight countries participated in the ITF International Tennis Tournament held recently in Dhaka. Among them, Renu Lal, daughter of Shibu Lal, a tennis player and coach of the expatriate Bangladesh, came to Dhaka to play for the country. General Secretary of the Law Tennis Federation, Golam Morshed, humiliated her and used indecent language. The victim's uncle filed a case at Gulshan Police Station yesterday.
