Bangladesh spinner Arafat Sunny has been given a bail of two months by the court in his girlfriend's snaps case.

Bangladesh’s Arafat Sunny has been granted a two-month bail after he was accused of posting intimate images of his girlfriend on social media, confirmed his lawyer on Thursday. Speaking to AFP, his lawyer Murad-uz Zaman conveyed the news.

“Sunny was released at around 9:00 pm Wednesday.”

The spinner was taken into custody by the Bangladesh police in Dhaka suburb in January after his girlfriend lodged a complaint under the internet laws of the country. The 30-year-old was charged for making a fake ‘Facebook account’ of his girlfriend and posting some of her private photographs, which she found ‘offensive and derogatory’.

If found guilty, Sunny could be jailed for up to 14 years and will have to face a fine of 10 million taka ($125,000) under cyber laws. Also, the board said Sunny, who has represented Bangladesh in 16 ODIs and 10 T20Is, could well be banned from playing cricket.

During the ICC World T20 tournament in India last year, Sunny was barred from bowling because of illegal action.

Apart from filing a derogatory case against him, Sunny’s girlfriend also dragged him to court as he sought dowry worth millions from her family. However, Sunny denied any such report along with the one that he’s been married to her secretly for two years now.
