Fearing that there might be illegal firearms and ammunition at the houses of BNP mayoral candidate Hasan Uddin Sarker and his aides, Awami League contestant in Gazipur City Corporation polls Zahangir Alam on Monday demanded that law enforcers raid the residences.
He made the demand while addressing a press briefing at his residence around 11:30 am.
The AL candidate also urged BNP to refrain from spreading falsehood.
Former vice-president of Supreme Court Bar Association Advocate Shafiqul Islam Babul, vice-president of city AL Abdur Rauf Nayan, its joint general secretary Altaullah Mandal and SM Moksed Alam were, among others, present at the briefing.
Meanwhile, Hasan Uddin said Zahangir’s remarks proved that they want to influence the election spreading panic.
He also said he has no illegal arms but licensed ones for which he pays tax to the government.
