A- A A+

The High Court has ordered a local returning officer to accept the nomination paper of Gonojagoron Mancha spokesperson Imran H Sarker's nomination paper from Kurigram-4 constituency.

The bench of Justice Sheikh Hassan Arif and Justice Razik-Al Jalil passed the order following a writ petition filed by Imran, seeking necessary orders.

Earlier on December 2, the Election Commission (EC) declared the nomination paper of Imran H Sarkar invalid.

The EC came up with the decision as the serial number of the signatories to his nomination paper found disordered.

Following the rejection, Imran H Sarkar filed an appeal against cancellation of his nomination paper the next day but the EC also rejected his appeal.

Later, he filed the petition with the High Court.
