Narasimha Murthy, an assistant engineer working in the Bangalore Development Authority's (BDA) North Division, was suspended and repatriated to Public Works Department (PWD), his parent division, on Wednesday.

A source in the BDA said BDA Commissioner Bharat Lal Meena placed the official under suspension following a complaint by a woman that the official had misbehaved with her.

“The OMBR Layout resident complained that he misbehaved with her when she met him to seek some clarification pertaining to site allotment,” the source said.

Mr. Meena has also written to the Public Works Department to ratify the suspension order.
