Rajshahi district police on Thursday withdrew Tanore police station officer-in-charge Rezaul Islam for working for Awami League candidate in the upazila parishad election scheduled for March 11.
Rezaul was withdrawn following an order by the Election Commission and was attached to the district police lines, said Md Shahidullah, superintendent of Rajshahi police.
The development came after one-day after Workers Party supported candidate for the upazila election, Shariful Islam, submitted a complaint to the EC on Wednesday alleging that OC Rezaul Islam was working for the AL candidate Lutfor Haidar Rashid Moyna.
Tanore upazila election returning officer Julkar Nayeen, also additional deputy commissioner, told New Age that the EC asked the district police to withdraw Rezaul from the police station as he was found guilty.
