The former deputy prime minister’s car was shot up on Saturday

BNP contestant from Munshiganj 1 constituency Shah Moazzem Hossain on Monday demanded that the Election Commission ensure his security and that of his supporters in his electoral area.

He made the demand in a letter submitted to Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda, reports UNB.

In his letter, Shah Moazzem, BNP vice-chairman, claimed that around 15-20 miscreants equipped with local weapons and sticks swooped on him and his followers at Kuchiamora in Sirajdikhan upazila of Munshiganj on Saturday afternoon.

“They opened fire on us in order to kill me. My supporters sustained severe injuries when they tried to prevent them,” he said.

Expressing his concern over his security as well as that of the people of his electoral area and terming the attack a big barrier to ensuring a level-playing field, the BNP leader urged the commission to take steps in this regard as per the law.

After submitting the letter, Shah Moazzem told reporters at the Ethat there is no equal field for all candidates in his constituency. "I see no level-playing field."

He alleged that police did not come forward to protect them during Saturday's attack.

Meanwhile, BNP candidate from Dhaka 2 Irfan Ibne Aman on Monday demanded withdrawal of the officer-in-charge of Kamrangirchar Police Station alleging that he was involved in the campaign for the candidate of a certain party.

Irfan, son of Amanullah Aman, submitted a letter to the Election Commission to this end.
