Dupchanchia city mayor was suspended in October 2020

The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the High Court order that held Bogra’s Dupchanchia City Corporation mayor Jahangir Alam’s suspension illegal.

The five-member bench by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain passed the order rejecting the petition filed by the state against the order.

The order removes the bar on Jahangir taking up the responsibilities as mayor, said Ruhul Kuddus Kajol, lawyer of the mayor.

Attorney General AM Amin Uddin and Additional Attorney General Mehedi Hasan Chowdhury appeared for the state during the hearing.

On October 27, 2020, the local government ministry through a notification announced the suspension of the mayor.

According to the notification, he was suspended as the court has received a charge sheet against the mayor in several cases filed at the Dupchanchia police station.

Jahangir took his suspension case to the High Court, which declared it illegal.
