Police arrested son of a businessman for allegedly sexually harassing Shakib Al Hasan's wife -- Ummey Ahmed Shishir. The cricketer's wife was allegedly harassed at the Mirpur National Cricket Stadium gallery on June 15 during a match against India, a Bangladeshi website has reported.
Shakib filed a case the following day with Mirpur police. Sub-Inspector Md Rasel said they had arrested 23-year-old Rahid, son of businessman Bazlur Rahman, from his Banani residence in the early hours of Thursday, June 19.
Rahid is one of the accused in the case filed by Shakib, the police official informed. The official also said, "We are looking for several others based on the description given by Shakib."
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) security staff had beaten up several of the harassers on the day when the game was halted due to rain. Witnesses said Shakib, too, had joined the BCB staff in the beating.
