A Kushtia court sent BNP's Kushtia-1 candidate Reza Ahmed Bachchu to jail in a case filed over the possession of illegal firearms and explosive on Wednesday.

Kushtia District and Sessions Judge Arup Kumar Goswami rejected the bail petition of Bachchu after he had surrendered before the court, said Public Prosecutor Anup Kumar Nandi, reports UNB.

The BNP candidate was on an eight-week interim bail, he added.

Bangladesh's next parliamentary election is scheduled for December 30.
