A dowry case was filed on Tuesday against former ameer of Rajshahi city unit Jamaat Ataur Rahman by his second wife Rasheda Begum.
Rasheda filed the case with Rajshahi Chief Metropolitan Court in the afternoon, said court sources.
According to the case statement, Ataur married Rasheda Begum on April 11, 2016 and promised her to disclose the matter after the political situation would be okay.
But, as Rasheda, with her younger brothers, went to Ataur’s house on June 2, he did not accept her, rather demanded Tk5 lakh dowry.
Ataur Rahman would accept Rasheda if she gave the said amount to him, the statement said.
The court, however, took the case into account and asked Ataur to appear before it within September 4.
