Left arm Bangladesh spinner Arafat Sunny has been in the news for all the wrong reasons in the recent past. Reportedly, Sunny and his mother were accused in a repression case that was filed by Sunny’s wife recently. The cricketer made a bail plea to the court soon after an arrest warrant was issued. However, now, as per the reports, the court has denied him bail citing the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act.
The court further moved the matter to the Women and Children Repression Prevention tribunal. The police have also asked for a week long remand of Arafat Sunny in this case. Talking about the case, it was his wife, Nasrin, who had filed the case against Sunny and his mother. She had alleged that Sunny had started demanding money from her six months after the marriage.
She added that Sunny’s mother, Nargis Akhter, started abusing her too. Whether the charges are true or not, it is still to be found. But the past of the Bangladeshi cricketer is not clean for sure. This is not the only pending case against him.
Earlier this year, he was arrested for allegedly posting the pictures of his girlfriend on the social media. In that case too, he was denied the bail. Arafat Sunny had posted some sensitive photos of him and his girlfriend from a fake facebook account which seemed to have the emotions of his girlfriend. The lady had filed a complaint against Sunny for misusing their pictures and hurting her sentiments.
“She said Sunny opened up a fake Facebook account of hers and posted their personal photos, which she found offensive and defamatory,” Jamaluddin Mir, the local police chief was quoted as saying by the Cricbuzz. “We have arrested him and sent him to the court, seeking to take him into custody for five days for questioning,” the police had said back in January this year.
Sunny was suspended from bowling in international cricket during the ICC World Twenty in India due to a suspect bowling action. He eventually cleared the test in the later part of 2016. The 30-year-old has appeared in 16 ODIs and 10 Tests for Bangladesh.
