A court here yesterday sent a man to jail following his arrest on charge of sexually harassing his wife in the cyber domain.
The Chief Judicial Magistrate's Court in the district passed the order after police produced the accused, Nazmul Islam, 32, before the court on charge of sending nude photos of his wife to her relatives.
Nazmul, a resident of Jugia area of the town, married a woman, 24, of the same area, around three years ago following love affairs, said Nasir Uddin, officer in charge of Kushtia Model Police Station.
The woman, belonging to Hindu community, was converted to Islam before the marriage.
“Around six months after the marriage, she came to know that Nazmul was a married man and father of two children. Then she declined to continue their conjugal life, but Nazmul kept forcing her to continue, even physically tortured her.
“Lastly on September 6, Nazmul sent some sexually explicit images of their conjugal life to several relatives of the woman through Facebook messenger.
“The victim woman on Monday evening filed a case against Nazmul under Section 57 of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act with Kushtia Model Police Station, and police arrested him shortly afterwards,” the OC said.
