BNP senior joint secretary general and the party’s candidate for the Narsingdi-1 constituency, Khairul Kabir Khokon, was sent to jail in two cases here on Thursday.

Narsingdi District and Sessions judge Mohammad Abdullah passed the order as Khokon appeared before the court seeking bail in the two cases.  

Of the two cases, one was filed with Narsingdi Model Police Station in February this year on the charge of his involvement with subversive activities while another was filed with the same police station two months later under the Explosive Substances Act.

Khokon submitted his nomination paper to the district returning officer on Wednesday to contest the upcoming general election with BNP’s ticket from the Narsingdi-1 seat.
