The marriage ceremony was held at Kashimpur Central Jail's office as per the High Court's order

A man who has been accused in a case filed under the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act has married the woman who accused him.

The marriage ceremony was held at the office of Kashimpur Central Jail - 2 in Gazipur around 3pm on February 15 (Saturday), as per the High Court's order that was handed down on February 9.

Confirming the news to Dhaka Tribune, Superintendent of Kashimpur Central Jail - 2 Jahanara Begum said the suspect Swapan, 22, was sent to jail on December 18, 2018.

The jail superintendent said Swapan was romantically involved with the woman, who later filed the case against him.

When the girl became pregnant, he denied the child was his, leading her to file a case against Swapan under the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act with Sreepur police station.

As the case was transferred to the High Court, a bench ordered marriage between the two. As a result, the duo was married at the jail premises in the presence of both their families.

Jahanara further said the jail authorities made arrangements for the marriage ceremony as the High Court gave the order and contacted family members of both parties.

The parents of the groom and bride, their one-year-old son and a few relatives were present during the rituals.
