HC stays govt order suspending Gazipur mayor

The High Court Sunday stayed the government order to suspend BNP leader MA Mannan as Gazipur.

The judges froze the order for three months after hearing a writ petition, reports bdnews24.com. 

The Local Government Division had issued the order on Thursday, barely a month after Mannan returned to office following a legal battle.

Mannan was being removed because of charges pressed against him by the Anti-Corruption Commission, said the order.

A vice-chairman of the BNP, Mannan was elected mayor of the Gazipur City Corporation in 2013.

He managed to return to office after facing two more suspensions that came prior to the government's latest order for his removal.
