Sufferings of people at Bhola Regional Passport Office, no passports without bribes

Sabbir Alam Babu, Bhola

There is no cause without bribe and broker in Bhola Regional Passport Office. The suffering of the service seekers is increasing day by day in this important department. Even if you are allowed to get a passport on an emergency basis, the passport does not match in three months.

The service recipients have to pay compensation for the mistakes of the officers and employees of the office. Officials and employees have been accused of making reverse threats if they want to know the reason for the mistake. There is no end to harassment if you do not give them the money they need. At the same time, the violence of the brokers has increased. The service recipients have sought the attention of the higher authorities to stop the harassment and take necessary steps.

According to the investigation, an officer of the Bhola Regional Office threw the passport at the Bhola Regional Office for the purpose of going abroad for work purposes. After a while a broker came and said what is the problem? After hearing all the facts, the broker said, I will do your job, there is no reason to worry. The victim then demanded money from Nayan through an office broker. The victims agreed and 12 people paid 13,000 rupees to the broker. Even after 3 months of paying the money, the victims did not get the passports.

When he went to the office to get the passport, the officer Jahangir Alam pushed him out. If the victim is late to get Nayan’s passport, Nayan goes to the office with the media personnel. To get the passport of Dalal Khair quickly, the name of the person to whom the money was given is Golamur Rahman. Sir, please leave their passports, otherwise they will hand me over to the police. Then the office officer Golamur Rahman remained silent and did not answer. When there was no response, he went to Bhola Regional Passport Officer Jahangir Alam and demanded justice against the officer. He assured the victims and the media representatives that action would be taken subject to investigation. Then he told everyone to leave.

On the other hand, Imam Mannan of Jame Mosque at Ilisha bus stand said that he will go for Hajj on an urgent basis. But he is delaying to give his passport as he did not take the slip at the right time. On condition of anonymity, the father of one of the girls said that he could not take his daughter out of the country for better treatment without getting a passport. Day by day the girl’s physical condition is deteriorating. Service applicants like him have to accept harassment in various ways since applying at the passport office. The brokers have formed a syndicate there with the connivance of the office workers.

When someone goes to the office for services except brokers, various excuses and harassment start. And when someone goes to the office through these brokers, the office staff puts a token mark on the application form. And according to him, commissions are traded.
Jasim, a resident of Char Fashion, said, “I have been allowed to get my passport for 4 months now, but when I contacted the office, they told me that we have nothing to do, I can’t give it because your passport book did not come from Dhaka.”

The book was not printed, Jahangir Alam said that the machine was broken. Jamil, a resident of Bhola, said, “I applied for a passport in the last three months by depositing money in a bank.” I deposited the money once on the instructions of the office officer but later I deposited the money in the bank to get the passport again. The people of the office demanded five hundred rupees while submitting the application form to the office. Later I was forced to pay five hundred rupees.

Jahangir Alam, assistant director of the Bhola Regional Passport Office, said if anyone admitted to the harassment, they would file a complaint. Complaints must be acted upon. I will look into the allegations made by the victim’s eyes.

He denied the allegations in a statement issued Friday stating “Similar, baseless allegations concerning Nineveh have been made more than once. He said several brokers have been identified.
