Nasir Hossain gets bail on illegal marriage case
Cricketer Nasir Hossain has been granted bail in a illegal marriage case before the legal divorce against will. Nasir’s wife Saudia Airlines flight attendant Tamima Sultana Tammi and two others have also been granted bail in the case.
On Monday, Dhaka Additional Magistrate Tofazzal Hossain granted them bail.
The plaintiff and Tamima’s first husband, businessman. Rakib Hasan’s lawyer Ishrat Jahan confirmed the matter.
They were granted bail in a case filed by Tamima’s ex-husband Rakib Hasan.
On the other hand, Nasir applied for exemption from personal appearance in the case. The court rejected his application.
Earlier, the court had summoned cricketer Nasir Hossain, his wife Tamima Sultana and Tamima’s mother Sumi Akter to appear before the court on September 30 after Rakib had lodged a complaint with the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI).
According to the PBI report, Nasir and Tamima got married in an illegal process.
The investigating officer of the case Mizanur Rahman submitted the report against the three accused including Nasir-Tamima.
The plaintiff Rakib’s lawyer Ishrat Jahan then applied for arrest warrants against the three accused. The court summoned them to appear in court on October 31.
On October 31, the accused surrendered before the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Jasim and applied for bail. Following the hearing, the judge granted them bail on a bond of Tk 10,000.
According to the lawsuit filed by Nasir-Tamima, Nasir married Tamima while she was married to Rakib, which is completely illegal under religious and state law. Nasir tempted Tamima and took her to himself. Rakib and his eight-year-old daughter are emotionally devastated by the immoral and illicit relationship between Tamima and Nasir. Rakib has been severely defamed in such activities of the accused, which is an irreparable loss for him.
