Director Sohanur Rahman Sohan, also stated that Chunnu's nomination for executive member was also revoked due to the same allegations.

The Social Welfare Ministry directed Sohan to convene the meeting in response to Nipun's petition.

Zayed threatened to sue the appeals board, but Nipun lauded the judgment as a "triumph of truth."

A group of film artists held a protest against the newly elected general secretary, Zayed Khan, ahead to the conference.

On Saturday, Nipun appeared in front of the board, but Zayed remained absent.
