Police detained TV star Ashraful Alam alias Hero Alam on Wednesday night following a domestic violence case in which the victim is his wife, now admitted to hospital.
“Police detained Hero Alam from in front of the police station around 10:30 pm on the allegation,” said SM Badiuzzaman, officer-in-charge (OC) of Bogura Sadar Police Station.
Alam’s wife Sadia Aktar was admitted to hospital as a victim of domestic violence over a family feud in Arulia village of Sadar upazila on Tuesday.
According to the victim, Alam used to beat her frequently. Alam returned home from Dhaka on Monday night from Dhaka and after dinner, he was talking to another woman over the cell phone when Sadia obstructed him triggering the dispute.
At one point, Alam started beating Sadia and left her severely injured. She was admitted to Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Medical College and Hospital (SZMC).
“Alam’s father-in-law also beat him in response to the torture resulting in Alam filing a case with Bogura Police Station accusing five people including his father-in-law in this regard,” said Abdur Rahim, Sub-inspector (SI) of Bogura Police Station.
Meanwhile, Hero Alam denied all the allegations and said that he only slapped his wife three or four times and her injuries were not serious enough for admission to the hospital.
He alleged that his wife is “involved in the extra-marital affair and never listens to him which caused the dispute.”
Hero Alam also alleged that recently his in-laws family members demanded that he should hand over his cable operator’s business to his wife’s name which he declined to do.
