After receiving a written complaint from Awami League (AL)-nominated candidate in Moulvibazar's Kulaura Upazila Parishad election, the Election Commission (EC) on Saturday night transferred Kulaura Police Station's officer-in-charge (OC).
Mohammad Shah Jalal, superintendent of police (SP) in Moulvibazar, said upon receiving the transfer order from the EC, he has transferred the OC, Shamim Musha, to the headquarters of Criminal Investigation Department in Dhaka.
On March 7, AL candidate ASM Kamrul Islam in the complaint filed with the office of chief election commissioner alleged that OC Shamim had campaigned and sought vote for a candidate, Shafi Ahmed Solman, who is a dissident leader of the same party.
Contacted, Shafi Ahmed Solman claimed that his adversary ASM Kamrul has deliberately complained against a good officer who had refused to comply with ASM Kamrul's “unlawful demands”.
OC Shamim served at the police station since July 7, 2017, before being transferred from Lakhai Police Station in Habiganj. He was promoted to the post of OC in 2005. He joined police as a sub inspector in 1991.
