Case against Khandker Mosharraf for ‘plan to sabotage polls’


Mohammad Ali Sumon, a retired army major and chairman of Daudkandi Upazila Parishad in Comilla filed a case of an alleged plot to sabotage election against the BNP leader Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain with the police. The complainant refers to an ‘intercepted telephone conversation purportedly between a top BNP leader and a senior official of a Pakistani spy agency’. The BNP leader now faces a sedition case that accuses him of plotting to “sabotage” the national election set for Dec 30.
The conversation available on YouTube feeds well into the ruling Awami League’s longstanding allegation that the opposition party has ties with the military intelligence outfit.
Mosharraf Hossain has been ‘plotting to sabotage’ the 11th national general election in that conversation with Mehmood, a Dubai-based operative of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence, Ali alleged in the case. Ali urged the police to take the necessary steps in line with the law.
Mosharraf Hossain dismissed the audio as ‘fake’ saying he never spoke to anyone from the ISI.
Daudkandi police chief Alamgir Hossain said they accepted the allegation from Ali, but any sedition case needs permission from the home ministry to proceed with. “We’re preparing to send the matter to the top authorities,” OC Alamgir Hossain said.
Mosharraf Hossain, a BNP standing committee member, is contesting as a candidate from the BNP and the Jatiya Oikya Front for Comilla-1 and 2 seats in the election.
Ali, the complainant of the case, is the son of Awami League candidate for the Comilla-1 constituency Subid Ali Bhuiyan. – GreenWatch News Desk
