The officer also directed the police to investigate the matter with urgency, as Noman addressed the allegations to him in a views-exchange meeting with candidates of 6 constituencies (Chattogram-4, 5, 8, 9, 10 and 11) at circuit house in the port city.
As a returning officer, Elias said he was pledge-bound to treat all candidates equally, and assured to provide the candi them a fair election atmosphere, he said.
Abdullah Al Noman said that he brought out a procession after gaining permission from police to inaugurate a victory rally at Nayabazar in Halishahar of the city.
“I and my followers came under attack by Jubo League men while I was delivering speech. I was cordoned off and the attackers tried to shoot me. I have that picture. Although I phoned some police officials immediately to protect me from the attackers, the police only came a long time later,” he alleged.
