  • Print
UNB, Dhaka :
BNP on Sunday submitted a list of cases filed against its leaders and workers to Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda.
A BNP leader, Salauddin Khan, submitted the list attached with a letter signed by BNP Secretary General Fakhrul Islam Alamgir to the CEC's office in the city's Agargaon area in the morning.
According to the list, the total cases filed during January 2018 to November 14, 2018 is 4,429, while the total number of accused is
4,34,975 with 1,09,441 named and 3,25,534 unnamed accused. Of the accused, the number of arrestees is 10,472 ones.
Some 773 BNP leaders and workers were arrested after the Commission announced the election schedule on November 8, the letter says.
Among the cases, BNP earlier submitted two lists of some 2,048 cases to the Prime Minister's Office on November 6 and November 13 after the two rounds of talks held between Jatiya Oikyafront and Awami League-led 14-party alliance at Ganobhaban in the city.
In the letter to the CEC, BNP said they were not informed whether the cases were withdrawn and arrested leaders and workers released after the submission of their lists of the cases to the Prime Minister.
In the letter, BNP requested the CEC to release its leaders and workers from the cases and immediately stop their arrest.
It further said thousands of false, fabricated, peculiar, baseless, fictitious and politically motivated cases were filed against its central unit and different grassroots units' leaders across the country after Awami League came to power in 2009.
The letter said law enforcement agencies kept arresting BNP leaders and activists filing false and fictitious cases against them across the country since September 1 ahead of the next parliamentary polls.
Even the names of dead, ailing and maimed persons, hajj pilgrims, and persons staying abroad were accused in the fictitious cases, the letter reads further.
