EC asks police to withdraw N’ganj SP

29 Nov,2018


Election Commission on Wednesday asked the police headquarters to withdraw Narayanganj Superintendent of Police Anisur Rahman following a demand made by Bangladesh Nationalist Party-led alliance.

Addressing a press conference at Nirbachon Bhaban in the capital, the commission secretary Helaluddin Ahmed said that EC made the decision based on ‘specific allegations’ against him.
Last week, BNP-led alliance had demanded withdrawal of the SP as his wife was a lawmaker of Awami League in a reserved seat.
EC officials told BDchronicle that the commission also asked police to start an investigation against the SP of Bhola saying that the police officer was allegedly involved in activities which might damage electoral environment.
