Dhaka, Mar 15: A legal notice was served to Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Mayor Annisul Huq on Tuesday.
An US expatriate Shamimun Nahar Lipi, who is also sister-in-law of mayor’s brother, served the notice to the mayor via postal mail by the Supreme Court lawyer Masud Rana.
Masud Rana told newsmen that Shamimun Nahar Lipi is sister-in-law of the mayor’s brother.
According to the legal notice, mayor Annisul aided her mother and brother to file a case with Rampura Police Station against her on false information. Without cross-checking the information, the mayor took a side that is very regretful.
The notice also read that the mayor told Lipi `shameless` that was scandalous and defamatory.
The notice sought an explanation within next seven days or further legal steps would be taken.
