Police say they have arrested two suspects over the incident

A mayoral candidate in Feni's Chhagalnaiya municipality election was abducted allegedly by the supporters of the current municipal mayor at upazila gate area before submitting his nomination paper Sunday afternoon.

Abducted mayoral candidate Abdul Halim, 38, was rescued by police in the evening after four hours of the abduction.

Halim alleged he was going with some of his relatives to submit the nomination paper for the post of the mayor on the last day of submission.

When he reached the upazila gate, some supporters of the current mayor and Awami League leader Mostafa stopped him and started beating him.

They later snatched the nomination paper from his hand and took him to an unknown place by an auto-rickshaw. So, he could not submit his nomination paper as the last date of submitting nomination papers was Sunday.

Later, police rescued him from the Banshpara area and sent him to Chhagalnaiya Upazila Health Complex.

Chhagalnaiya Circle Assistant Superintendent of Police Sohel Parvez said that they arrested two suspects -- Shishir and Mezbah Uddin -- from the spot in this connection.

Md Shahidul Islam, officer-in-charge of Chhagalnaiya police station, said they were trying to arrest the others involved in the incident.

On Sunday, two candidates for the post of mayor, 11 candidates for the three posts of (reserved seat) women councillors and 44 candidates for the posts of nine councillors in general wards submitted nomination papers.
