The High Court has imposed a ban on renowned Bangla film actor Monowar Hossain Dipjol from discharging his duties as the general secretary of the Bangladesh Film Artistes Association for the 2024-26 term. 

At the same time, the High Court ordered an investigation into the irregularities in the election of the Bangladesh Film Artists Association.

The High Court bench of Justice Naima Haider and Justice Kazi Zinat Haque passed the order after hearing a writ petition filed in this regard.

On May 15, actor Nipun Akter, the defeated general secretary candidate, filed a writ petition in the High Court seeking the annulment of the 2024-26 elections of the Bangladesh Cholochitro Shilpi Samiti.

The writ sought a ban on the Misha-Dipjol-led committee from performing its duties.

In her writ, she demanded the formation of a probe committee, alleging irregularities and rigging in the election.

Besides, instructions have been sought to announce the new election schedule.

Earlier, the Misha-Dipjol panel won the 2024-26 elections of the Bangladesh Cholochitro Shilpi Samiti.

On April 20, Chief Election Commissioner Khorshed Alam Khosru announced the results of the election.
