Prothom Alo File PhotoA 45-year-old man, who claimed to have married 60 women using fake names and identities, was arrested from his original home at Sobharchar village in Jamalpur in a case filed by his latest wife.

The man was identified as Abu Bakkar, son of a certain Badsha Mia, of Islampur upazila of Jamalpur, reports UNB.

A team of Islampur police station arrested Bakkar early Saturday and sent him to Purbadhala in a case filed by his last wife Rosy Khanam under Women and Children Repression Prevention Act, said Md Tawhidur Rahman, officer-in-charge of Purbadhala police station.

Bakkar told police that he had married 60 different women and had two wives and seven children in his village home, the address he never used for his other marriages.

In her case, Rosy said Bakkar used to marry underprivileged poor girls and take money from them.

Bakkar married Rosy, an MA student and resident of Purbadhala in Netrakona, in August this year by pretending as a bachelor and the district area manager of Incepta Pharmaceuticals.

She told UNB that Bakkar identified himself as Shahin Alam, son of Akram, of Kutubpur village in Bakshiganj, Jamalpur, while marrying her. He also asked for Tk 200,000 as dowry after the marriage.

Bakkar was living at her home after marriage, but went into hiding after taking Tk 80,000 from her brother to get him a job at a medicine company.
