BARISAL, Mar 19: A rebel Awami League (AL) chairman aspirant from Kazir Char union of Muladi UP here threatened for committing suicide by digging his own grave on the courtyard of his residence on Saturday.
Later police arrested rebel candidate Engr Yusuf Ali and produced before the court in the afternoon over the charges of 'spreading rumor' and 'baffling locals.'
Court, however, sent him to jail. Locals and witnesses said Yusuf feared that AL-backed aspirant's cadres might have beaten him and his supporters to win in the polls.
However, AL nominated chairman candidate Alhaj Montu Biswas claimed "Yusuf and his activists threatened me and my supporters in several times. He had done this from political jealousy and plotted the suicide drama."
