Independent lawmaker from Faridpur-4 constituency Mujibur Rahman Chowdhury alias Nixon Chowdhury has secured anticipatory bail for eight weeks from the High Court in a case filed by the Election Commission (EC) for allegedly violating the electoral code of conduct.
The High Court bench of Justice Md Zakir Hossain and Justice KM Zahid Sarwar gave the anticipatory bail to him on Tuesday (October 20).
Lawyer Shahdin Malik moved for Nixon Chowdhury during the hearing in the court.
On October 18, Nixon filed a petition with the High Court seeking anticipatory bail in the case initiated by the Election Commission.
Faridpur's Senior Election Officer Nawabul Islam started the case against Nixon with Charbhadrasan police on October 15 over allegations of abusing the deputy commissioner and a few other election officials verbally during the by-election to the post of Charbhadrasan Upazila Parishad chairman.
Nixon, however, pleaded innocence and claimed that the audio clip was ‘super edited’.
