Man held in case filed by ‘60th wife’

UNB, Netrakona

A 45-year-old man, who claimed to have married 60 women using fake names and identities, was finally arrested from his original home at Sovarchar village in Jamalpur in a case filed by his last wife.

The polygamist was identified as Abu Bakkar, son of Badsha Mia, of Islampur upazila of Jamalpur. Md Tawhidur Rahman, officer-in-charge of Purbadhala Police Station, said Islampur Thana Police arrested Bakkar on early Saturday and sent him to Purbadhala in a case filed by his last wife Rosy Khanam under Women and Children Repression Prevention Act.

Bakkar told police that he had married 60 times and had two wives and seven children in his village home, the address he never used for his other marriages. In her case, Rosy said Bakkar used to marry underprivileged poor girls and take money from them. Bakkar married Rosy, an MA student and resident of Purbadhala in Netrakona, in August this year by posing as a bachelor and the district area manager of Incepta Pharmaceuticals.

She told UNB that Bakkar identified himself as Shahin Alam, son of Akram, of Kutubpur village in Bakshiganj in Jamalpur, while marrying her. He also asked for Tk 2 lakh dowry after marriage, she added.

Bakkar was living at her home after marriage, but went into hiding after taking Tk 80,000 from her brother to get him a job at a medicine company.
