A mobile court led by executive magistrate in Gazipur’s Sreepur upazila parishad polls has sentenced a man to three days in jail for allegedly influencing at a polling centre, breaching the electoral code of conduct.

The incident took place at Gosinga High School in Gazipur’s Sreepur around 10:15am on Tuesday (May 21).

The convicted person is Kamrul Hasan Khan, 44, son of Faijuddin and a resident of the Gosinga village.

Mozammel Haque Sheikh, presiding officer of Gosinga High School centre, said the Executive Magistrate and Kaliganj Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) SM Imam Raji Tulu took the step as the man was repeatedly roaming around and violating the code of conduct.

Balloting is scheduled to continue until 4pm without any break under tight security.
