Scrutinise NPP leader's nomination in 24 hrs

HC to returning officer

The High Court yesterday ordered the returning officer of Kishoreganj-2 constituency to receive and scrutinise the nomination paper of Tarek Mohammad Shahidul Islam, a National People's Party (NPP) nominated aspirant, in the next 24 hours.

The bench of Justice Tariq ul Hakim and Justice Md Shohrowardi passed the order after hearing a writ petition filed by Tarek, seeking necessary orders so that he can contest the 11th national election slated for December 30.

Citing the writ petition, Deputy Attorney General Amatul Karim Swapna said Tarek went to submit his nomination paper on November 28. The returning officer refused to accept it citing that the NPP leader was late for submission.

The government will move a petition before the apex court, seeking stay on the HC order, the DAG said.

Barrister Md Mutaher Hossain appeared for Tarek Mohammad.
