A supporter of the Awami League’s mayoral candidate in Brahmanbaria’s Akhaura municipality election has been accused of kicking another mayoral candidate Nurul Haque Bhuiyan.
The incident took place at around 9pm on Wednesday at the Sadar Bazar road market. Nurul Haque Bhuiyan was also hoping for Awami League’s nomination for the post of mayor. He was the three-time chairman of Akhaura South Union Parishad and once the mayor of Akhaura municipality.
Nurul Haque Bhuiyan lodged a written complaint against Sohag Mollah at the police station last night. The accused Sohag is the son of Quader Mollah of Devgram in Akhaura upazila.
Mayoral candidate Nurul Haque Bhuiyan complained that he was drinking tea at a tea shop in Sarakbazar at night. Sohag and a few others came to the shop. Sohag slapped me for standing against Takzil Khalifa Kajal. I have made a GD at the police station.
In this regard, the current mayor of Akhaura municipality and the term of the Awami League nominee Takzil Khalifa Kajal said, he did not know the incident of Nurul Haque Bhuiyan’s shoes. He is in Dhaka. If anything like that happens, the police will take legal action against the accused. If he is a member of the team, organizational measures will be taken.
Akhaura Police Officer-in-Charge (OC) Rasul Ahmad Nizami said, “We have received the complaint of Nurul Haque Bhuiyan.” Necessary steps will be taken after investigation in this regard.
It may be mentioned that the Akhaura municipality election will be held on February 14. The total number of voters in the municipality is 26,910. Of these, 14,231 are male voters and 14,069 are female voters.
