Dhaka police have registered a case against Shahadat Hussain and his wife on charges of assaulting their housemaid under the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act. While Dhaka Court accepted this case on Monday, the court directed the police to submit the reports of charges on October 12.
Shahadat filed a complaint on Sunday with Mirpur police saying that the couple’s housemaid has been gone missing and is unreachable through the phone as well till now and is untraceable too.
The victim of age 11 was found on Sunday night by a local journalist, Khandakar Mozzamel Haque; he took her to the Mirpur police station, under whose judgment it was found that she has been abused. Then only, the case was filed, and the victim was sent to Dhaka Medical College Hospital for treatment.

But from what we have seen in the media, it is unwanted,” said BCB CEO Nizam Uddin Chowdhury. “We didn’t expect this from a senior cricketer like him. We are embarrassed.”
