Police on Thursday submitted an application to a court in Dhaka to sue poet and columnist Farhad Mazhar and his wife Farida Akther for lodging a case with Adabor Police Station with what they termed false information of abduction.
The application was lodged three weeks after a Dhaka court allowed the investigators to sue the couple in connection the abduction case filed on December 7.
‘We have received the application and documents from the investigators Thursday afternoon. We will place them before the court on Sunday,’ sub-inspector Shah Alam, a general recording officer of Dhaka court, told New Age, without disclosing further information.
‘DB inspector [Mahbubul Islam] who investigated the [Farhad] abduction case lodged the case with court,’ said Adabor police officer-in-charge Shahinur Rahman.
On July 3, family members claimed that Farhad Mazhar had been kidnapped by unknown miscreants from Adabar in the capital in the early hours of the day.
Later, police found him in a ‘Hanif Paribahan’ bus around 11:30 pm on the day while he was returning to Dhaka from Khulna.
Later, his wife filed the case with Adabar Police Station.
