Bangladesh’s Energy Minister AKM Mosharraf Hossain has submitted his resignation in a car scandal.

Mr Hossain allegedly accepted a Toyota Land Cruiser Cygnus from a Canadian-based energy company. He denies any wrongdoing.

However he confirmed he had resigned, citing personal reasons.

Groups campaigning to protect the country’s gas resources had demanded the removal of the minister over his alleged use of the car.

The energy ministry has maintained that Mr Hossain did not violate government rules.
