Bangladesh Bank (BB) has formed a probe body to investigate the controversial roles of chairman of Creative IT Ltd, an IT service provider selected by the central bank for providing training under its skill development project.
The BB has taken this initiative after a news published in a vernacular daily which has alleged that Monir Hossain, Chairman of Creative IT Ltd is involved in anti government and anti state activities.
"During the mass gathering of Hefajot-e-Islam in Dhaka, Monir Hossain led several online propaganda teams against the government and published a status seeking the early death of Sheikh Hasina, the Prime Minister of Bangladesh", the report alleged.

The report also claimed that the company chairman also published anti state and controversial statements on Bangabondhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the father of the nation, Prime Minister's ICT Advisor and son Shajib Wajed Joy in various social media in the past.
