The Assam State

Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA) has terminated the

services of Hailakandi DDMA District Project Officer, Ikbal

Hussain Laskar, for allegedly submitting his Annual

Confidential Report (ACR) fraudulently.

Hailakandi Deputy Commissioner-cum-Chairman, District

Disaster Management Authprity (DDMA), Adil Khan had pointed

out the criminal offence committed by Laskar of fraudulently

submitting the ACR to the ASDMA for renewal of his annual

contract without the DDMA chairman's approval or knowledge, an

official spokesman said Monday.

Laskar has been terminated with retrospective effect

from August 11, 2018, an order issued by ASDMA chief executive

officer, said Saturday.

He has been asked to hand over all official documents

and electronic gadgets to the Field Officer, Hailakandi

revenue circle and settle the financial liabilities incurred

during his tenure, the order said.

The matter came to the fore when the ASDMA sent a

letter to Khan on August 18 informing him about the renewal of

Laskar's contract.

Khan immediately wrote to the Joint Secretary and

State Project Coordinator, ASDMA about the matter.

On inquiry, Khan found out that Laskar had kept him in

the dark on the need to endorse his ACR for a three-month

period. He had submitted it in a fraudulent manner to the

ASDMA CEO and got his contract renewed from July 1 last.

Laskar was also found to be inefficient, callous and

incapable of discharging his responsibilities in disaster

management and preparedness, the deputy commissioner had

pointed out in his letter.

He remained conspicuous by his absence when flood

wrecked havoc in the district in June last, the letter read.

Despite several warnings, he did not mend his ways, a

show cause notice was served on him but the reasons he cited

were unacceptable and rejected outright by the authorities

concerned, the deputy commissioner stated.
