Pregnant UNO made OSD: PM directs to investigate

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has directed to investigate the incident of making Narayanganj Sadar Upazila Executive Officer Hosne Ara Begum officer on special duty (OSD).

When the news was published on the media, it came to the notice of the prime minister. Today morning, she instructed the Public Administration Secretary Faiz Ahmed to investigate this matter and take necessary action.

On February 4 last, Hosne Ara Begum was made OSD. On February 8 night, she updated her Facebook status that took the admiration by storm.

It has been reported that she was appointed to this post nine months ago. In her conjugal life, she could not be a mother for nine years despite doing everything at her disposal. However, five months ago, she came to know that she had been pregnant for two months. With this condition, she successfully bore the responsibility of the assistant returning officer in the December 30 election. Her possible date for childbirth was on April 20. But the unexpected news of being made the OSD hurt her psychologically. She was admitted to the hospital and gave birth to an 8-month old premature baby. Currently, she is under the neo-natal intensive care unit (NICO) facility at Square Hospital.

When this news drew the attention of the prime minister, she directed to investigate this matter. After conducting a fair investigation, she instructed to appoint her to a better place.
