Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Mayor Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh called for withdrawing cases filed against his predecessor Sayeed Khokon.
He made the call while addressing the press at the Nagar Bhaban on Tuesday.
A recent statement made by Sayeed Khokon bringing corrupt allegation against present rule of DSCC has already turned into laughingstock, he said.
Barrister Taposh said he has nothing to do with the cases which are filed by any overenthusiastic persons.
“I have nothing to do with the cases. Two overenthusiastic lawyers filed the cases. I am requesting them to withdraw the cases,” he said.
Taposh administration has been exposed to bitter criticism and personal attack following eviction of large number of illegal shops allegedly leased, facilitated and overlooked during Sayeed’s term.
Later, two lawyers–Sarwar Alam and Kazi Anisur Rahman– filed two separate cases against the former mayor with the court of Metropolitan Magistrate Rajesh Chowdhury.
