Gazipur Mayor’s suspension stayed

PV Desk : A government order to suspend BNP leader MA Mannan as Gazipur mayor has been halted by the High Court.

The judges froze the order for three months after hearing a writ petition on Sunday.

The Local Government Division had issued the order on Thursday, barely a month after Mannan returned to office following a legal battle.

Mannan was being removed because of charges pressed against him by the Anti-Corruption Commission, said the order.

A vice-chairman of the BNP, Mannan was elected Mayor of the Gazipur City Corporation in 2013.
