2 councillor candidates beat up in Feni
Two councillor candidates of on-going Feni municipality election have been beaten.
Injured persons are BNP-backed councilor candidate Nurul Islam with ‘carrot’ seal and independent councilor candidate Tajul Islam Pavel with ‘pomegranate’.
The incident took place at Mehedi Sayeedi Municipality Girls School center under ward No. 14 at about 9:00am on Saturday. Several cocktails were also exploded during the time.
Tajul of ‘pomegranate’ seal said supporters of AL-backed Didarul Islam surrounded him when he tried to enter the center and beat him up.
Meanwhile, BNP-backed candidate Nurul said criminals occupied the center since Friday night. They hacked him when he went to the center to cast his vote.
Terming the allegation false, AL candidate Diadarul said the rivals are trying to disrupt the election. But, the election is underway peacefully.
While contacted regarding the matter, assistant superintendent of Feni police Atwar Rahman said no one has complained to the police about the attack.
