The popular actress recently hit headlines after she filed an attempt of rape and murder case against six people, including former president of Uttara Club Limited Nasir U Mahmud, with Savar Police Station.

Pori Moni, in her verified Facebook page, uploaded a status seeking justice from Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, claiming that the six people attempted to rape and kill her on June 9 at Uttara Boating Club.

Later, Nasir and Tuhin Siddiqui Omi were arrested along with three others from a house in Uttara on June 14, even though they denied all those allegations.

However, the duo secured bail on June 29, and Nasir charged the actress with committing misconduct and acts of defamation.

“A heavily drunk Pori Moni entered our club on the night of the incident along with a few other men and gulped one and a half bottles of alcohol in quick time,” Nasir wrote in a Facebook post on June 5.

“Later, she raided our shelves and tried snatching a costly bottle of drink. When our waiters resisted, she started throwing our utensils and used abusive and vulgar language against them,” he mentioned.
