A court in Jhenidah has sentenced Harinakundu Pourasava Mayor Shahinur Rahman Rintu to one year imprisonment in a case filed for vandalising a power sub-station and assaulting an employee.
District Judicial (3rd) Magistrate MA Azharul Islam on Thursday also fined him Tk 1,000, in default to suffer 20 days more in jail. The court, however, acquitted four other accused.
According to the prosecution, Rinku vandalised a sub-station of the Palli Bidyut Samity and beat up its employee Yusuf on July 13, 2015.
Later, the PBS Assistant General Manager filed a case accusing five persons.
