Faridpur 4 MP Mujibur Rahman Nixon Chowdhury has filed an anticipatory bail petition with the High Court in a case filed by the Election Commission.
The case was filed against Nixon for violating electoral code of conduct during the by-election to the post of chairman of Charbhadrasan Upazila Parishad.
The petition was filed with the bench of Justice Sheikh Md Zakir Hossain and Justice KM Zahid Sarwar on Sunday.
Supreme Court lawyer Dr Shahdeen Malik stood for Nixon Chowdhury.
The lawyer said the bench may hear the petition on Tuesday.
Earlier on October 15, Senior District Election Commission Officer Nauabul Islam filed the case with Charbhadrasan police station.
In the FIR of the case, legal action was sought against the MP under Upazila Parishad Electoral Code 2013 and Upazila Parishad Elector Code of Conduct 2016.
Nixon reportedly threatened the deputy commissioner (DC) and the assistant commissioner (land) of Faridpur district over the arrest of his supporters during by-polls to the post of chairman of Charbhadrasan Upazila Parishad.
He came up with the threat at a victory rally held in front of Charbhadrasan Upazila Awami League office after Awami League candidate Upazila Awami League General Secretary Md Kawsar Hossain (boat symbol) won the election.
