A zonal officer of Bhopal Municipal Corporation, who was filmed watching porn during an official meeting, was suspended on Thursday.

In-charge of zone 10 Anil Sharma was suspended after he was caught watching sexually explicit videos during the special meeting called on Monday.

The suspension of the 50-year-old officer was followed by initiation of a departmental inquiry and a ban on carrying cellphones to meetings.Only a week ago, women councillors were filmed taking selfies and group photographs in another meeting of the corporation.

Bhopal Municipal Commissioner Tejaswi Naik said he had seen the recorded “evidence” and prima facie found the officer guilty. He said the officer had skipped the previous meeting.

“I am not a technical person. I was updating myself by checking groups on my WhatsApp account when a porn video accidentally opened and I could not close it. I hardly watched it for one and a half minutes,” the officer told The Indian Express.

Sharma, who has completed nearly two decades of service, said he would try to defend himself in his reply to the showcause notice.
