Rape case filed against ex-Hefazat leader Mamunul

Mamunul Haque, the former joint secretary general of Hefazat-e-Islam, has been accused of rape on false pretext of marriage by a woman he had claimed to be his wife.

The woman filed the case at Sonargaon Police Station at 10:50am on Friday.

According to the case dossier, the victim claimed she had been confined after the Narayanganj resort incident and was not allowed to communicate with her parents at that time.

She blamed Mamunul for breaking up her marriage.

On April 3, the Hefazat leader was caught with the woman at the Royal Resort. He then claimed that she was his second wife.

Later, a purported phone conversation between Mamunul and his wife was allegedly leaked in which he was heard introducing the victim as his wife.

After his arrest, Mamunul also reportedly admitted to having contractual relationships with two other women.

Police rescued the victim from the house of Mamunul's sister in Mohammadpur and handed her over to her father.
