Mominul, 30, son of Abdus Sattar of Gobindapur in Khansama upazila of Dinajpur, was arrested in a case filed by a victim with Paltan Police Station in the capital.

Quoting the victim, the police officer said Mominul sent a friend request to the victim by introducing himself as a senior judicial magistrate. Day by day, their ‘relationship’ reached new heights.

According to the CID officer, one day, they decided to marry. On the day of marriage, he sent a fake nikah nama to the girl, saying he was very busy with government work.

Believing his words, the victim signed the nikah nama and sent it to him.

After a few days, Mominul went to the girl’s house and married her as per Shariah. After that, they lived as a ‘couple’ for a few days.

The arrestee filmed private moments and objectionable photos of the girl during the ‘conjugal’ life.

To protect herself from social stigma, the victim paid the amount to the accused. But, he continued to harass her and so she filed the case.

The CID officer said Mominul also blackmailed the girls whose objectionable videos were found in his mobile phones.

Not only that, he cheated many people in the name of giving them government jobs and arranging government foreign tours with different ministers.
