Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Rosina Khan ordered the Sadar Upazila executive officer or UNO to investigate the case and all the charges admitted against the cricketer on Sunday.

This could get Mosaddek in trouble big time as he is in the list of probables for the upcoming Asia Cup in the United Arab Emirates. If the case goes ahead against him, he might have to miss the tournament. In 2016, Mosaddek made his debut in the same competition and since then, has been a regular member of the team. His all-round abilities has kept him in the plans of the selectors with the World Cup next year.


Torturing for Dowry

According to the reports in bdnews24, Mosaddek Hossain has been torturing his wife Usha for dowry. “Mosaddek has been torturing Usha for the dowry for a long time. He (Mosaddek) tortured her and drove her out of home for Tk 1 million in dowry on Aug 15,” her lawyer Rezaul Karim Dulal said. Even her elder brother has accused him of extramarital affairs after the marriage and also informed that money has changed the mind of the cricketer.

“Whenever my sister asks him to stop such activities, he gets heated and that’s the beginning of contention as well as distance. Although everything was fine in the beginning, Mosaddek started to lose his morality after getting chance in the Bangladesh national team. We realize that star fame, name-calling, and money have changed him,” he was quoted as saying by bdcrictime.

However, Mosaddek’s brother Mosabber Hossain has denied all the charges by saying that the couple was in disagreement ever since they got hitched and also said that his wife started to spread false rumours for giving her money.

“They have been in disagreement since they married. Mosaddek sent her a divorce letter on Aug 15. But she demanded more money than mentioned in the marriage documents as ‘Denmohar’ or dower. She has started the case after spreading false and misleading information as she did not get the money,” Mosabber said.
