Arrest warrant against SQ Chy
A court in Tangail yesterday issued an arrest warrant against BNP leader and lawmaker Salauddin Quader Chowdhury in a defamation case.
Judge Mohammad Waez-al-Kuruni of Judicial Magistrate Court issued the warrant.
Earlier on August 19, Advocate Abdur Rahim, senior vice-president of Tangail district Jubo League, filed a Tk 20 crore defamation suit with the same court accusing Salauddin Quader Chowdhury of making derogatory remarks about the National Mourning Day and Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
The plaintiff said in his case statement that SQ Chowdhury does not acknowledge the very existence of Bangladesh and has been creating chaos by making comments against the independence and sovereignty of the country that hurt him as an admirer and follower of Bangabandhu.
Advocate Shamimul Akhter and Shahanshah Siddiqui Mintu moved the case on behalf of the plaintiff.
After taking the case into cognisance, the court on August 19 directed the Sadar upazila assistant commissioner (land) to investigate the case and submit a report by yesterday.
