Off-late the turmoil had aroused that the Bangladeshi all-rounder, Shakib Al Hasan’s wife was harassed by a 23-year old person during the Bangladesh Vs. India match at the Mirpur Stadium. The incident took place during the time when play was interrupted by rain and Shakib allegedly had a row with that man who was apparently harassing his wife.
Shakib had attended a BCB hearing for that incident which took place during the first ODI. BCB Directors, Akram Khan and Jalal Yunus and also acting CEO, Nizamuddin Chowdhury were present at the hearing to hear the version of events from Shakib-Al-Hasan. Shakib, at the hearing claimed that he did not hit the spectator but he could still be punished as he had left the team dressing room during the course of the international match. A report will be generated on the incident by the manager and after that Shakib will be informed about the Board’s decision.
Shakib stated, “I left the dressing-room and that is against the rules. However, I was not aware of that rule. So from that point, I do have a fault but let’s see what happens and wait for the decision. I don’t regret it. I did not raise my hand. There were others, there was security, but I did not raise my hand. But yes, I was there.”
The man who is suspected as the culprit is the son of a reputed businessman. He was arrested by the state police on Wednesday but he was granted bail on the following day.
Shakib said that this is a very poor incident that has occurred and he also stated that he would pursue with the case. His words were as such, “I will continue with the case. I heard that in the case of eve-teasing there is no bail, so I don’t know how that boy got bail. I am serious about this issue. I think an example needs to be set. It [eve-teasing] happens a lot in Bangladesh. This should be an example.”
