He asked the court to dismiss the gazette announcing Atiqul Islam as mayor, and requested for a re-election  

Tabith Awal, who contested in the Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) elections a month ago, has filed a case against eight officials of the Election Commission, accusing them of rigging votes and irregularities during the polls.

The case was filed with the court of Dhaka's First Joint District Judge Utpal Bhattacharjee on Monday.

In the case, Tabith accused eight officials, including Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda.

Tabith contested the city polls as the mayoral candidate of BNP.

Tabith's lawyer Advocate Taherul Islam Towhid said the court has accepted the case but has not yet fixed the date for hearing.

Tabith also asked the court to dismiss the gazette which announced Awami League candidate Atiqul Islam as the DNCC mayor, and requested for a re-election.

On February 1, Dhaka city dwellers exercised their voting rights to elect two mayors, Awami League’s Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh and Atiqul Islam, for the Dhaka South and North city corporations, respectively, for the next five years.
