A 34-year-old woman in Lalmonirhat spent three days in jail after the police had detained her on a fake warrant of arrest in a case in Bogra.
The victim, Alo Begum, was released on Thursday, the family said.
On April 22, a judicial magistrate court in Bogra issued a warrant for one Alo Begum, of Lalmonirhat, who was jailed for three years in a case, and asked Lalmonirhat police superintendent to take action.
In response to the warrant, the police arrested the wife of Mahi Jewel of Storepara in the municipality.
On May 7, the judicial magistrate court in Bogra sent her to jail.
The family members approached the court and explained the warrant might be false.
The authorities later found the warrant was fake and asked the jail authorities to release her.
Lalmonirhat police officer-in-charge Mahfuz Alam confirmed the incident and said that the fake warrant was issued from Bogra.
He said that an investigation would be conducted on how the housewife was targeted.
