She is wanted over an acid attack on her ex-husband
Police are looking for popular pop singer Mila Islam in a case filed over an acid attack on her ex-husband Parvez Sanjari in 2019.
A Dhaka court recently issued an arrest warrant against the singer in the case.
Pallabi police station Officer-in-Charge Kazi Wazed Ali said they began operations to locate Mila after receiving the warrant, reports Bangla Tribune.
"Two units of police are already after her. So far, we have raided her home and a number of other places," the OC said. As of 8pm on Friday, Mila was yet to be found.
Mila and Sanjari were married on May 12, 2017, but their conjugal life was plagued with regular disputes. She filed a dowry case against Sanjari on October 5 the same year, and he also accused her in a number of cases.
The two were divorced on January 31, 2018.
On June 2, 2019, unidentified criminals threw acid at Sanjari. His father SM Nasir Uddin filed a case against Mila and her associates over the incident.
In June, 2019, another arrest warrant had been issued for Mila after she did not appear before a Dhaka court as a witness in a woman and child repression case filed against Sanjari.
