Bangladeshi cricketer Mosaddek Hossain's wife accuses him of torture over dowry
Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Rosina Khan admitted the charges brought by Usha against the middle-order batsman on Sunday and ordered the Sadar Upazila executive officer to investigate the case, bdnews24.com reported.
Mosaddek has been torturing Usha for dowry for a long time, her lawyer Rezaul Karim Dulal alleged.
"He (Mosaddek) tortured her and drove her out of home for 1 million taka (USD 12,003) in dowry on August 15," he claimed.
The report said that the cricketer did not immediately respond for comments on the case.
"They have been in disagreement since they married," the cricketer's brother Mosabber Hossain Moon said.
Mosaddek sent her a divorce letter on August 15 but she demanded more money than mentioned in the marriage documents, the brother claimed.
"She has started the case after spreading false and misleading information as she did not get the money," Mosabber alleged.
