A Dhaka court on Wednesday framed charges against former national cricketer Nasir Hossain and his wife and Saudi Arabian Airlines cabin crew Tamima Sultana Tammi in a case filed over 'illegal marriage'.
Dhaka Additional Magistrate Tofazzal Hossain passed the order, also acquitting Tamima’s mother and co-accused Sumi Akter of the charges.
The court set March 10 to start recording depositions of the witnesses.
Tamima’s first husband Rakib Hasan filed the case on February 24, 2021, and the court had instructed the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) to probe the allegations and submit its report.
Rakib and Tamima got married on February 26, 2011, and they have an eight-year-old daughter. On February 14, 2021, Tamima married Nasir without divorcing Rakib.
PBI on September 30 submitted its investigation report to the court saying the marriage of Nasir and Tamima was illegal.
