The Daily Star has issued a termination notice to its executive editor Syed Ashfaqul Haque, reports UNB.

The management of The Daily Star issued the notice to Ashfaqul without immediate effect.

The notice was published in the English and Bangla online editions of The Daily Star on Tuesday.

The move comes two months after 15-year-old domestic worker Preeti Urang died after she fell from Ashfaqul's ninth-floor apartment.

After her body was found under the building, local people staged a demonstration in the area, alleging that Preeti was killed. Preeti’s father Lokesh Urang filed a case with Mohammadpur Police Station the next day.
Both Ashfaqul and his wife Tania Khandaker are now in jail in the case. Their bail has been rejected several times in the court.

Ashfaqul joined the newspaper in 1993 in the sports section and worked as sports editor, joint news editor, news editor, chief news editor, and finally as its executive editor from 2019 till date.
