The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court (SC) today upheld a High Court order that stayed the suspension of Khulna City Corporation (KCC) mayor Moniruzzaman Moni.
A four-member panel of Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha passed the order while dismissing a plea filed by the state seeking a stay on the High Court order.
Government suspended Moni as par the rule last year as chargesheets were submitted against him in two criminal cases. Following a plea against the government order, the High Court stayed that suspension order on June 7.
The state filed an appeal against the High Court order on August 10.
