Organised extortion and corruption are now deeply rooted in Titas Gas Transmission and Distribution Company Limited.
For at least 5 years, a nexus of three to four syndicates has been operating from within the company. A number of its former and current employees have built a network that uses Titas Gas Company's resources to extort money from the users.

In Straight from Star Newsroom, Farhana Ahmed discusses this burning issue with The Daily Star reporter Mohammad Jamil Khan.
