Husband brutalises singer Mila
Popular pop singer Mila's husband was arrested on Thursday night for allegedly torturing her, leaving her left arm broken and several other parts injured.
Mila filed a case with Uttara West Police Station under the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act on the day, and police arrested her husband Parvez Sanjari, pilot of a privately-run domestic airline company, later on, police said.
Parvez was produced before the Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court yesterday with a five-day remand prayer, and the court sent him to jail keeping the hearing on waiting, Ali Hossain Khan, officer-in-charge (OC) of the police station told The Daily Star.
Tasbiha Binte Shahid Mila, commonly known as Mila Islam, got married to Parvez on May 12 this year after a 10-year-long relationship, but Mila's husband and in-laws used to torture her both mentally and physically, the singer's father said.
“Parvez have affairs with a number of women. Mila could realise this after the marriage, and then the torture came down on her,” said her father Lt Col (retd) Shahidul Islam, adding that Parvez used to demand dowry from her daughter.
“Mila wanted to continue the relation with Parvez. That's why she didn't take any legal action before. But now, she is mentally broken,” he said.
On October 1, Parvez burnt her with cigarette butts and tortured her physically, broke her arm, in their Uttara house, said Shahidul Islam.
Her father rescued her and got her admitted to Dhaka Medical College Hospital the next day. Later she was transferred to the one-stop crisis centre of the hospital.
Bilkis Begum, coordinator of the one-stop crisis centre, told The Daily Star that Mila had injuries all over her body.
