DSCC public relations officer Uttam Kumar Roy confirmed this to the daily sun on Sunday.
They were asked to reply the notices within next 7 working days, he added.
Earlier on October 17, AKM Mominul Huq Sayeed alias casino Sayeed, councillor of ward-9 of the DSCC was removed from his post for being absent in meetings and staying abroad without proper permission.
The authorities took punitive action against councillor Sayeed following allegations of his links to illegal casinos business.
