Sadar Upazila UNO Arifza Zohra discovered the matter after she arrived at Deobhog in Kashipur to provide food to the man, identified as Farid Ahmed, on Thursday afternoon.
A mobile court subsequently ordered Farid to provide 100 low-income people with food as a punishment.
Farid will now have to distribute more than 1,500 kg of food items among the poor. He claims that he called the emergency service hotline to 'satisfy his curiosity'.
The UNO will distribute the food aid to the 100 poor families on Friday.
"The Kashipur resident made a call to us seeking food assistance on Wednesday. I myself went to his home to deliver the food. But I discovered that the man has a four-story building and a factory."
"I made the call just for no reason. It was a mistake," the man told Johra after she reached his home with the food assistance.
"Food assistance is delivered to people just a day after they called on the national hotline. But many people make calls for no reason and it's just not well," Zohra said.
