The election search committee on Thursday (November 30) issued a show cause notice to Shakib Al Hasan, star cricketer and Awami League-nominated candidate from Magura-1 constituency, for breaching electoral code of conduct.

Joint District and Sessions Judge Satyabrata Shikder, who has been leading the Magura-1 election search committee, asked Shakib to appear before the election search committee in-person tomorrow (December 1) afternoon and reply to the notice.

The notice said, “You, Shakib Al Hasan, entered Magura city with a convoy from Kamarkhali area on November 29 after being declared as Awami League-nominated candidate from Magura-1 constituency.”

The notice says that Shakib attended civic receptions, creating obstruction on the movement of people. The incident was reported by several media outlets.

“By doing so, you have violated the provisions of sections 6(d), 8(a), 10(a) and 12 of the Code of Conduct for Political Parties and Candidates,” according to the notice.

Shakib has been asked to reply in writing as to why legal action should not be taken against him for breaching the electoral code of conduct.
