Bangladesh cricketer Rubel Hossain was slapped a case by actress Naznin Akter Happy under the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act. The actress alleged that Rubel shared a relationship with her under the pretext of marriage, and filed the case with the Mirpur police on Saturday.

“We first got into touch through Facebook about a year ago. We’ve been having an intimate relation for nine months now. Rubel got involved with another girl while talks about our marriage were underway. He avoided me each time I tried to talk about it,” the actress was quoted as saying in a report by bdnews24.com.

The actress has been taken to the Victim’s Support Centre after the complaint, from where she will be taken to the Dhaka Medical College and Hospital for forensic tests to check her allegations, according to a statement by the Senior Inspector of Mirpur Police Station, Tanvir Hasan.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) was cautious in its approach to the matter. I have heard of the case and the allegations levelled. But I can only react when we have the case papers and a clear idea of what happened,” said BCB Chief Executive Officer Nizamuddin Chowdhury.

The Mirpur police, in the meantime, is on the lookout for the pacer.
