Dhaka – Police have filed a case against poet Farhad Mazhar ans his wife Farida Akhter for falsifying information over July abduction of the poet.
The police said the allegations Akhter filed on the so-called abduction with a police station in the city was a stage-manage drama.
The couple bluffed the police, officer Mahbubul Haque, who investigated the abduction case, said in the case he filed with Adabar police station.
Haque, an inspector of the detective branch of police, also submitted the case document to the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate court of Dhaka on Thursday.
The documents are likely to be produced before the court on Sunday.
Metropolitan Magistrate Khurshid Alam earlier asked the officer-in-charge of Adabar Police Station to file a case against the couple after the investigators submit report on the reported abduction on December 7.
Mazhar was found in a passenger bus in south-eastern Jessore district early on July 4, more than 30 hours after his wife filed an allegation that the poet was abducted from his Dhaka residence.
He was brought to Dhaka and produced before the court that allowed him to be on his own custody.
As he was produced before the magistracy in Dhaka, a court recorded his statement before he was freed. Metropolitan Magistrate Ahsan Habib allowed poet to be at his home.
But the mystery was not revealed fully despite he was quizzed at the office of the detective branch of police in Dhaka. The detectives then launched an investigation and found the story of abduction was a fake one.
The poet himself avoided questions from the press on the day he was found and shifted to hospital from the court.
But months after, when the investigators submitted the report, Mazhar claimed that he was abducted and police written his statement that was submitted before the court ahead of his release.
