The executive magistrate, who had a spat with a physician while discharging lockdown duty in the capital recently, has been transferred to Barishal.
Md Anisur Rahman Miyan, additional secretary of the public administration ministry, confirmed the transfer of Sheikh Mamunur Rashid on Thursday night.
He was attached to the Dhaka deputy commissioner's office.
Earlier on Sunday, the magistrate along with some policemen waylaid an associate professor of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University at an intersection of Dhaka, to check her identity as part of professional duty.
The physician was not carrying her identity card, but her official attestation to be a pandemic front-liner was displayed on her car's windshield.
An altercation erupted there as the administrative official insisted her to show identity card and she replied in taunting words.
A video clip of the incident went viral on the social media platforms and created a huge buzz.
There have been overwhelming criticisms, arguments and counter-arguments both online and offline regarding the incident.
