Dhaka: Bangladesh`s Supreme Court has
sacked a judge for installing a hidden camera inside his
colleague`s bedroom.

Iliyas Rahman, a lower court judge, committed the
offence while he was posted in southwestern Begarhat district
in August last year.

Rahman admitted his offence saying he had installed
the camera at his colleague`s bedroom "being influenced by
adventure movies".

"The decision was taken in a full court reference
chaired by Chief Justice ABM Khairul Haque ordered assistant
judge Iliyas Rahman (of lower judiciary) be sacked for the
`immoral act`," a Supreme Court official said.
