A Dhaka court has indicted Bangladesh national cricketer Arafat Sunny in a dowry case and issued an arrest warrant against him.
Metropolitan magistrate Jakir Hossain Tipu issued the warrant on Sunday after framing charges.
Cricketer Sunny's lawyer Muraduzzaman filed a time petition as the cricketer could not appear before the court due to his illness. But the court rejected the plea.
One Nasrin Sultana alleged that she and Sunny were married on December 4, 2014. However, just after six months into the marriage, Sunny on July 29, 2015 demanded Tk 20 lakh as dowry.
Later, she filed the case on January 23, 2017.
