Women repression lawsuit filed against Sunny, his mother
Yet another lawsuit has been filed against spinner Arafat Sunny and his mother Nargis Akter, under Women and Children Repression Prevention Act by a woman named Nasrin Sultana, who claimed to be Sunny’s wife.
Nasrim filed the case with the court of Judge SM Rezanur Rahman Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal-4 on Wednesday.
After the hearing, Judge SM Rizanur Rahman directed the officer-in-charge (OC) of Mohammadpur Police Station to submit a report before it after an investigation.
Nasrin’s lawyer Kamal Uddin informed that his client and Arafat got married on 4 December in 2014. Arafat’s mother Nargis Akter advised Arafat to threaten the woman to break up the marriage if she does not give Tk 2 million, he added. Kamal Uddin also said Arafat’s mother along with few others, beat his client up in Mohammadpur area on 22 January.
Arafat Sunny was arrested from his Amin Bazar residence on January 22 after the woman, Nasrin Sultana, accused the bowler of threatening her online and had filed a case against him under the Information and Communication Act (ICT) earlier this month.
This is not the first time that a criminal case has been filed against a Bangladesh cricketer. Right before the World Cup in 2015, Bangladesh pacer Rubel Hossain was accused of rape but was eventually acquitted.
More recently, a case was filed against former Bangladesh Test pacer Shahadat Hossain, who was accused of beating his house help. Shahadat too was found not guilty and was let go after a short period.
