A writ petition has been filed with the High Court seeking cancellation of parliament membership of Tangail-4 lawmaker Hasan Imam Khan Sohel Hazari.

Local voter Md Mokhlesur Rahman filed the petition for hiding educational information in the affidavit on Tuesday morning.

The HC bench of Justice Mamnoon Rahman and Justice Khandaker Dilurujjaman might conduct the hearing of the writ on today.

Deputy Attorney General Amit Das Gupta confirmed the news.

Burhan Khan, lawyer of the petitioner, said Mokhlesur Rahman had earlier written a letter to the Speaker on July 25 stating that there were discrepancies in educational qualifications of lawmaker Hasan Imam Khan in the affidavit. In the letter, he requested the Speaker to send the matter to the Election Commission to solve the issue.

As the the issue was not settled, so he filed this writ with the High Court, he said.
