web- Fake candidate held in Kurigram
Police arrest Dudu Joddar, pretending to be a valid electoral candidate in the Ulipur upazila of Kurigram on Monday, December 17, 2018 Dhaka Tribune

Dudu Joddar was caught while campaigning for votes from people using the unregistered “helicopter” symbol

Police have detained a man pretending to be a valid electoral candidate in the Ulipur upazila of Kurigram. 

Dudu Joddar, the man posing as a parliamentary candidate, was caught while campaigning for votes from people using the unregistered “helicopter” symbol in the Ulipur Bazar area around 9:30pm Monday.

Ulipur police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Moazzem Hossain confirmed the matter, adding that they seized a battery-operated easy bike and a megaphone. The driver of the easy bike was also held.

Resident of a local village, Dudu pretended to be an independent candidate and even had posters of his fake party printed for attempted authenticity. However, locals were aware that the Kurigram 3 constituency that Ulipur falls under does not have an independent candidate, and called the police on Dudu.

OC Moazzem also said: “Dudu has an outstanding warrant in his name for stealing. He was probably just fooling around, but we will interrogate him to find out if there was an ulterior motive.”
