After repeated attempts to find out the duo, the woman’s husband Sarwar Bappi filed the lawsuit with the court.

A Barisal court has issued a warrant for the arrest of a Jatiya Party (JaPa) backed mayoral candidate of Khulna City Corporation in a case filed for eloping with a married woman.

The district’s Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) court issued the warrant against Mushfiqur Rahman, son of late Atiar Rahman of Sonadanga Residential Area in Khulna city, on November 16 of last year.

After repeated attempts to find out the duo, the woman’s husband Sarwar Bappi filed the lawsuit with the court.

Sonadanga police station’s Officer-in-Charge Mamtaj Uddin said they received a copy of the warrant and have already started looking for Mushfiq.

Meanwhile, sources said that Mushfiq is currently in Dhaka.

According to the case docket, Bappi’s wife Humaira Ahmed Jinia was previously familiar with Mushfiqur.

Taking advantage of the relation, the accused used to frequent to the residence of the couple on Daptarkhana Road in Barisal Sadar.

Mushfiqur, who was also already married, finally managed to develop an illicit affair with Jinia and ended up fleeing away together on August 17.

When contacted, Bappi said he was feeling greatly insecure since Mushfiur kept threatening him with life if he had not withdrawn the case.

Bappi also wrote to the Khulna Metropolitan Police commissioner, seeking his intervention in this regard.

According to the letter, the JaPa leader and his accomplices attempted to kill him on August 29.

Interestingly, Mushfiqur over phone defended himself, saying Jinia is his wife now, and denied having learnt neither about the case nor the arrest warrant.

“I am not coming to Khulna for busyness relating to my political and business activities,” he continued, adding that he would visit Khulna in a week.

Meanwhile, Khulna city unit JaPa Joint Convener Khairul Islam said Mushfiqur had been absent in the area for nearly five months.

“We have had no contact in the meantime, but we heard that he was sued and that is possibly why he is not coming to Khulna,” Khairul said.

Admitting Mushfiqur being unaccounted for since mid-August, Mollah Shawkat Hossain, another Japa joint convener of the city unit, said they were verifying the allegation of him fleeing away with the married woman.
