Bangladesh national cricketer Arafat Sunny was denied bail today and sent to jail after completion of his remand in a case filed under ICT Act.
Metropolitan Magistrate Zakir Hossain Tipu passed the order after police produced Sunny around 3:00pm on completion of his one-day remand.
Sunny was arrested from his Amin Bazar residence Sunday. A 23-year-old woman, who claimed to be Sunny's wife, sued the cricketer for “threatening her online”.
According to the case statement filed by Nasrin Sultana on January 5, 2017, Sunny threatened to reveal indecent photos of Nasrin on Facebook.
Sunny, while speaking to police on Sunday and during remand on Monday, denied the allegations and said that they were fabricated. He however acknowledged his acquaintance with the woman.
In the case statement, Nasrin claimed to be in a relationship with Sunny for the last seven years and also said that the couple got married on December 4, 2014.
However, according to Nasrin's statement, neither of the families knew about their wedding. Nasrin claimed that despite her repeated requests Sunny refused to take her home.
Yesterday, the woman filed another case against Sunny claiming that he sought Tk 20 lakh dowry.
