Nomination paper and educational certificates of a chairman aspirant of Ghoraghat upazila parishad election were allegedly taken away by force on Sunday in the upazila.

The incident took place at Sonamukhi intersection on Gobindaganj-Dinajpur road in the upazila around 12:30pm when the aspirant, Shuva Rahman Chowdhury, was on his way to election office in Dinajpur for filing his candidacy in the election to be held on March 18.
