Mila was summoned for not showing up as a witness before the court for more than one and a half years. As such, the Tribunal issued a non bailable arrest warrant.
The court also asked the lawyer why she should not be charged with contempt of court for questioning the court, honorable judge, wise lawyers, and other parties, on social media at different times.
On October 5, 2017, Mila filed a lawsuit against her husband with the Uttara West Police Station on physical abuse and demanding dowry charges. Police arrested Sanjari when she filed the case.
