Tabith's supporters claimed that five to seven people were injured in the attack
He made the statement while speaking to reporters after the attack in Kalyanpur on Tuesday.
"I believe, a planned attack was carried out on me in this morning at Ward 9," he said.
"Before this, my campaign was barred at Ward 10. These incidents happening in the same area cannot be a coincidence in any way," the mayoral aspirant added.
Tabith alleged that a gang of goons, led by Awami League-supported councillor candidate for Ward 9 Mujib Sorwar Masum, attacked him and his followers from behind.
Tabith's supporters claimed that five to seven people, including the mayoral aspirant, were injured in the attack.
After the attack, Tabith began his campaign in Kalyanpur area.
On the other hand, Masum said his polls campaign confronted Tabith's campaign when offensive slogans against Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, also the Awami League president, were shouted by BNP men.
"Consequently, Awami League activists, along with local people, became agitated and a brawl took place there."
Darussalam police station Inspector (investigation) Dulal Hossain said there was a commotion when two opposite campaigns faced off each other.
"However, the incident did not escalate into major violence," he said.
The elections to DNCC and Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) have been rescheduled for February 1.
