Case filed against Gazipur mayor Zahangir in Rajbari

A case was filed against Gazipur City Corporation (GCC) Mayor Mohammad Zahangir Alam with a Rajbari court on Tuesday over his derogatory remarks on Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and martyred freedom fighters

One Shashi Akter of Rajbari Police Lines area filed the case with Rajbari Judicial Magistrate's Court-1 around noon under penal code 505 and 504.

Shoshi is the president of Manobik Bangladesh Society's Rajbari municipality unit.

Uzir Ali Sheikh, public prosecutor of Rajbari Judge Court confirmed the news.

The court took the case into cognisance and ordered the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) to submit a report to it by February 13 next after conducting an investigation, he said.

Earlier, Zahangir made derogatory comments on Bangabandhu and martyred freedom fighters at a programme. The video of the programme where he made such remarks went viral.

Following the incident, the Awami League issued a show cause notice on the GCC mayor asking him to submit his explanation within 15 days.

In his reply to the show-cause notice, Zahangir expressed sorry for violating the discipline and begged mercy.

Zahangir, general secretary of Gazipur city Awami League, was stripped of the party post and also removed from the primary membership of the party on Friday for such outrageous remarks.
