The court has issued summons against cricketer Nasir Hossain, his wife Tamima Sultana Tammir and Tammi’s mother Sumi Akter in a case filed against him for marrying someone else’s wife without divorce.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Jasim passed the order on Thursday (September 30th).
The case was scheduled to be submitted on the same day. The investigating officer (IO) of the case, Mizanur Rahman of the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI), filed a report accusing the three.
According to the investigation report, Tamima did not divorce Rakib. Legally, Rakib did not receive any notice of divorce. Tamima has forged a divorce notice and published it in various media. As a result of not getting a divorce in due process, Tamima Tammi is still in power as Rakib’s wife. According to the country’s religious rules and regulations, it is illegal and punishable to marry another person without divorcing one husband. In such a situation, the marriage of cricketer Nasir Hossain and Tamima Tammi is illegal. It has been initially proved that they have committed a crime under Section 468/471/494/497/500/34 by having an illicit marital relationship while having a husband. Besides, Tamima’s mother Sumi Akhter was also found guilty in the illegal marriage, the report said.
After the report was submitted to the court, the plaintiff’s lawyer Israt Hasan applied for an arrest warrant against the accused. However, the court did not issue an arrest warrant and directed them to appear in court by October 31.
On February 24, a man named Rakib Hasan filed a case against Tammir’s husband. In the case, it has been alleged that the previous marriage was kept secret while the other’s wife was lured away.
According to the case, Tammi and Rakib got married on February 26, 2011. They also have an 8-year-old daughter. Tammi is a cabin crew by profession. Rakib came to notice when the wedding photos of Tammi and cricketer Nasir Hossain were spread on social media on February 14 this year. He later found out about the incident in newspapers.
The case further said that Rakib and his baby daughter were mentally disturbed due to such immoral and illegal relationship between Tammi and Nasir. Rakib has been severely defamed by such activities of the accused.
