A Sylhet court on Sunday sent a former inspector of Nabiganj Police Station to jail, in a case filed over torturing his wife for dowry.
Manikul Islam, who had been absconding for a period of almost six years since the incident, was posted at Nabiganj as police inspector back in 2017. Sylhet Additional District and Session Judge Mizanur Rahman Bhuiya passed the order after rejecting his bail petition in the case.
According to the prosecution, Manikul got married to a Bangladeshi expatriate in Canada after providing false information in September 2014. Later, he put pressure on his wife to take him to Canada. Later, she, a physician by profession, managed a visa for Manikul.
But by then, Manikul refused to go to Canada and instead demanded Tk 50 lakh from his wife.
