A Dhaka court on Monday accepted a charge sheet in the case filed by Dhallywood actress Porimoni against three people, including businessman Nasir U Mahmood and his associate Tuhin Siddiqui Omi.

The case was lodged against them on charges of attempt to rape and murder the actress.

Judge Hemayet Uddin of Dhaka’s Ninth Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal passed the order in the presence of the two out of the three accused.

The other accused is Shah Shahidul Alam, who has remained in hiding. The court issued a warrant for his arrest.

On the same day, the court also rejected a no-confidence petition filed by Porimoni on December 1 for reconsidering the probe report submitted by Savar Police Station. 

The court also fixed March 3, 2022 for the next hearing in the case.

Police submitted the charge sheet to the court, accusing Nasir, Omi and Shah Shahidul on September 6.

Porimoni filed the case with Savar Police Station against Nasir and five others on charges of attempt to rape and murder her on June 14.
