Hero Alam lands in jail
A court in Bogura on Thursday sent much talked about model cum politician Ashraful Hossain Alam, popularly known as Hero Alam, to jail in a case filed for beating up his wife.
Additional chief judicial magistrate Shahriar Tarique passed the order denying the bail appeal of the accused at noon.
Earlier, lawyer SM Masudar Rahman Swapan stood for Hero Alam in the court and sought bail for him.
“We will file appeal with the High Court as lower court rejected the bail petition,” said the lawyer
Police detained Hero Alam on Wednesday, hours after a complaint was filed that he physically tortured his wife.
On Tuesday evening Sadia Begum Sumi along with his father Saiful Islam and other people beat up her husband Hero Alam at his residence in Erulia area of the town, said SM Badiuzzaman, officer-in-charge of Bogura Sadar Police Station.
Hero Alam received first aid at hospital in the night and lodged complaint against five people including his wife.
On the other hand Saiful in his complaint said Hero Alam beat up his daughter Sumi on Monday night over family feud. The scuffle was held over the allegation of second marriage against Hero Alam.
Sumi alleged that her husband had a second wife in Dhaka, and he ignored the responsibility towards her and tortured her, she added.
However Hero Alam denied the allegations and said all that happened to turn him into 'zero from hero'.
