BNP-backed mayoral candidate Rafikul Islam Nayon has been pulled out from a polling station after allegedly beating him up during the election to Ishwardi municipality in Pabna.

Awami League leaders and activists allegedly beat up the BNP-backed mayoral candidate and later pulled him out of Islamia Alia Madrasa polling station when he visited the centre around 9:30 am on Saturday (January 16).
