Jannat Ara Jharna, the “second wife” of Hefazat-e-Islam leader Mamunul Haque, has filed a case against him for allegedly raping her by showing the temptation of marriage. 

She filed the case with Narayanganj’s Sonargaon Police Station on Friday morning, confirmed the police station OC (Investigation) Shafiqul Islam.

The case has been filed under Section 9 (1) of the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act. Although Mamunul Haque claimed Jannat as his second wife, she did not “mention” herself Mamunul Haque’s wife in the case.

She mentioned in the case details that Mamunul Haque made an affair with her on the pretext of marriage temptation and helplessness. But when it comes to marriage, Mamunul kept procrastinating. He took her to different hotels and resorts since 2018 on the pretext of visiting.
