Earlier on Sunday, metropolitan magistrate Pranab Kumar put Arafat Sunny on a one-day remand in the case filed by a 23-year-old woman Nasrin Sultana, who claims to be Sunny’s wife.

The woman claimed that Sunny had married her in 2014 but did not give her formal recognition and threatened her by sending her photos of their intimate moments using facebook messenger, he said.

In the case statement, Nasrin claimed to be in a relationship with Sunny for the last seven years and also said that the couple got married on December 4, 2014.
