The court has directed the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) to probe the case against cricketer Nasir Hossain and cabin crew Tamima Tammi for allegedly “marrying someone without a divorce certificate”. 

Tammi’s ‘husband-claimant’ Rakib Hossain filed a case in the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Jasim on Wednesday.

On the day, the court accepted the statement of the plaintiff. Following the hearing in the afternoon, the court directed the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) to submit a report on March 30.

According to the case document, Tammi and Rakib got married on 26 February 2011. They also have an eight-year-old daughter. Tammi is a cabin crew by profession. Rakib came to notice his wife got married again when the wedding photos of Tammi and cricketer Nasir Hossain were spread on social media on 14 February this year. He later found out about the incident in newspapers.

The document further alleges that Tammi married Nasir while her marital relationship was ongoing with Rakib – which is completely illegal under religious and state law. Nasir tempted Tammi and married her. 

Rakib and his eight-year-old daughter have been severely traumatized by the immoral and illicit relationship between Tammi and Nasir. Rakib has been severely defamed in such activities of the accused – which is an irreparable loss for him, the document added.

Cricketer Nasir Hossain married Saudi Airlines cabin crew, Tamima Tammi, on 14 February on Valentine’s Day.
