Two cases were filed against former DNCC mayoral candidate Chowdhury Irad Ahmed Siddiky in Jhalakathi and Jessore on Saturday.

Irad, son of BNP leader Chowdhury Tanbir Ahmed Siddiky, is already charged in five other cases filed in the same regard.

Bani Amin Baklai, law affairs secretary of Jhalakathi sadar upazila Awami League, lodged the case with a Jhalakathi court under the Information and Communication Technology Act (ICT) on Sunday.

The court ordered Jhalakathi sadar OC to act upon the filed case.

Public prosecutor of Jhalakathi district court Abdul Mannan Rasul confirmed the incident.

Meanwhile, Mir Jahurul Islam, organising secretary of Awami League Jessore unit, filed a case against Irad for threatening Hasina and making defamatory comments on Bangabandhu on Facebook, said Our Jessore correspondent.

Jahurul filed the case with Jessore Senior Judicial Magistrate Court on Sunday under the ICT act.

Irad had run for mayor in Dhaka North City Corporation but lost to Annisul Huq.
