Attorney general AM Amin Uddin and additional attorney general Mehedi Hasan Chowdhury appeared for the state during the hearing.

On 27 October 2020, the local government ministry through a notification announced suspension of the mayor.

According to the notification, he was temporarily suspended as the court has received charge sheet against the mayor in several cases filed at the Dupchanchia police station.

Jahnagir took his suspension case to the High Court which declared it illegal.
