Case against UNO Tariq Salman withdrawn


PV Desk : The defamation case filed against Barguna Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Gazi Tariq Salman over publishing a portrait of Bangbandhu has finally been withdrawn. 

Plaintiff of the case, suspended Barisal district unit Awami leader Obaidullah Saju pleaded to the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court-Barisal for cancelling the lawsuit, on Sunday morning (July 23).

The court of Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Amit Kumar Dey passed the order in response to the plea, said defendant’s lawyer Advocate Afzalul Karim to Banglanews.

Gazi Tariq Salman, UNO of Barguna Sadar and a former UNO of Barisal’s Agoiljhara upazila, was earlier sued after he printed the portrait of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, painted by a child, on an invitation card.
