Marriage of Nasir-Tamima is illegal: PBI

Cabin crew Tamima Sultana Tammi is still the wife of businessman Rakib Hasan as she did not divorce him.

So, the marriage of cricketer Nasir Hossain and Tamima Sultana is not legal, according to a report pressed by Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI).

PBI’s investigation officer Mizanur Rahman submitted the report before a CMM court on Thursday accusing Nasir, his wife Tamima Sultana and Tamima’s mother Sumi Akhter.

According to the investigation report, Tamima did not divorce Rakib, her first husband. Rakib did not get any legal notice on the issue. Moreover, Tamima made a fake notice and provided it in different ways.

As per Muslim law, it is a crime and punishable to marry someone before divorcing the first husband.

In this circumstances, cricketer Nasir and Tamima Tammi’s marriage is illegal, the report said.
