Justice Shamsuddin Chowdhury Manik on Thursday lodged a complaint against BNP candidate Tabith Awal with the Election Commission (EC) for hiding information in affidavit for Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) election.

He submitted a written allegation to Election Commissioner Md. Rafiqul Islam.

Justice Shamsuddin Chowdhury Manik told newsmen that there are three shareholders of Singapore Company NFM Energy (Singapore) and Tabith Awal is one of them.

“All three shareholders own this company. The company is worth over two million US dollars. It is quite a big amount, but Tabith did not mention this information in his affidavit. His nomination form should be void.”

He is also thinking of filing a writ petition in this regard.

Md. Rafiqul Islam said they have already received the allegation. It will be discussed after the CEC returns home from abroad.
