The presiding officer at the Dhaka-14 seat has allegedly taken signatures from polling agents of the candidates at the Kallyanpur Girls' School And College polling centre before the end of voting.

According to the rules, signatures are taken after the voting is over. 

Activists of independent candidate Sabina Akhter Tuhin made the allegations and said that the balloting may have been rigged by taking signatures in advance on the empty forms. 

“I do not know why and for whom the presiding officer took signatures of the polling agents,” she added.
