Mintoo loses all hopes
09 April 2015, Nirapad News: BNP-backed Abdul Awal Mintoo lost all hopes to run in the Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) mayoral race.
Supreme Court Appellate Division Thursday passed no order on his plea challenging High Court verdict that scrapped his petition to reverse Election Commission decision canceling his nomination paper. The hearing held at the SC bench led by Chief Justice SK Sinha.
Lawyers said SC passed no order after hearing and that meant it upheld the HC verdict.
On Monday, HC division bench rejected Mintoo’s writ petition challenging the cancellation of his nomination papers for mayoral candidate in the upcoming DNCC polls.
On April 1, the returning officer of the Dhaka North rejected the nomination papers of two mayoral candidates, including that of Mintoo.
