A petition has been filed to file a case against cricketer Nasir Hossain and his newly-married wife Tamima Tammi “for marrying someone else’s wife without a divorce certificate.”

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

Earlier, the court accepted the statement of the plaintiff. The court said it would issue an order after the hearing.

According to the petition, 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 petition 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 petition added.

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