Earlier on Thursday, Mila filed a case with the Uttara (west) police station, claiming that Parvez tortured her for dowry.
Later, police arrested the accused on Thursday night, said Uttara (west) police station officer-in-charge Ali Hossain Khan on Friday night.
“Mila’s husband beat her up and broke one of her arms. She was taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital for treatment,” he added.
“We sought remand for the accused but the court ordered to send him to jail. We’ll plea again on Sunday for his remand,” the OC added.
Investigation officer of the case sub-inspector (SI) Aminul Islam said, “Parvez was sued under the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act.”
According to the case statement, Mila was beaten by her husband on 3 October. Later, she was treated at DMCH.
