Rajshahi Metropolitan Police Commissioner Md Shamsuddin disclosed the matter on Saturday.
He said there are five cases including murder against BNP-backed RCC mayor Bulbul.
The suspension was sought amid the speculation that the procedures of the cases might be interrupted if he (Bulbul) continues on the post of mayor.
