The Bangladeshi-origin beauty queen and also Ms Earth International, Maksuda Akhter Prioty, has alleged that her sister has been facing domestic violence committed by her brother-in-law from last nine years.
She took to her Facebook account on Friday and made the allegation without unveiling the identity of the husband of her younger sister.
She wrote: “My sister has been tolerating mental and physical tortures in her in-laws' house since last nine years.”
“My sister’s husband has extramarital affairs with different women in different times but when my sister came to know about all those, she has fallen victim to domestic violence and going through extreme mental and physical tortures continuously since then,” she wrote in her status around 5:26pm on the day.
“She [Prioty's sister] is also deprived of all modern facilities like smartphones and internet services during the last nine years in the conjugal life because her husband advised her not to go outside and keep a normal relationship with other relatives. Rather, she should stay inside the home and only to read Hadith and other Islamic books,” she added.
“I am not mentioning the name of anyone because of the Data Protection Rules, but I want my sister to come out of all these. She even doesn't have the courage to fight against her husband,” the beauty queen said.
Taking Facebook, she also alleged: “When she [Prioty’s sister] went to the Pallabi Police Station to file an FIR (First Information Report) against her husband, police refused to file any FIR citing lack of proper documents of domestic violence.”
Pallabi Police Station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Md. Dadan Fakir has refused the allegation saying: “No one from that family came to us to file an FIR in my last three years’ service in the police station.”
“There is no question of refusal. We will take the matter seriously and start our probe immediately if someone comes to us,” the OC added.
Kaler Kantho team wanted to talk to Prioty's sister about the issue several times. But, she stated to remain under severe mental trauma and cannot make any comments on the issue right now.
