Cricketer Nasir, his wife Tamima get bail

A Dhaka court today granted bail to cricketer Nasir Hossain, his wife Tamima Sultana Tammi, and mother-in-law Sumi Akhter in a case filed over his 'illegal marriage'. 

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Jashim passed the verdict when they surrendered before the court and sought bail in the case. 

On September 30, a report of the Police Bureau of Investigation (PIB) said the marriage between Nasir Hossain and Tamima Sultana is illegal as she is still the wife of businessman Rakib Hasan. 

PIB investigation officer Mizanur Rahman submitted the report before the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Jashim. 

Later the court asked Nasir Hossain, Tamima Sultana, and Tamima's mother Sumi Akhter to appear before the court on October 31. 

Tamima allegedly got married to cricketer Nasir without divorcing her husband Rakib Hasan. 

According to the PBI report, Tamima did not divorce her first husband Rakib and Rakib did not get any divorce notice from her. Rather, Tamima made a fake divorce notice. So, Tamima is still the wife of Rakib, the report said.

Earlier, on February 24, a Dhaka court directed PBI to investigate the case. Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Court Judge Md Jashim passed the verdict after taking the case filed by Rakib into cognizance. 

According to the case statement, Tamima got married to Rakib Hasan on February 26, 2011 and they have an eight-year-old daughter. 

Tamima, a cabin crew of Saudia Airlines, had been staying in Saudia Arabia due to the Covid-19 pandemic since March 10, 2020.

At that time, she contacted her family through mobile phone and social media. 

Tamima got married to cricketer Nasir Hossain on February 24 while photographs of the marriage went viral on social media which drew the attention of Rakib Hasan and he filed a case.
