Paceman’s wife arrested but player at large
The case of torture alleged against Bangladesh paceman Shahadat Hossain and his wife has taken a new turn, as the cricketer's wife was arrested at her parents' home on Sunday, but the player is still at large.
The couple are accused of torturing their maid, an 11-year-old girl, after she was found crying in the streets in Dhaka, and told police that the couple had mistreated her. She was taken to hospital for her injuries.
Shahadat, who has since been suspended from all cricket activity by the Board, and his wife went on the run, and after a weeks-long search, the woman has been arrested after a tip-off.
Police inspector Shafiqur Rahman told AFP on Sunday: "Nritto Shahadat was arrested from her parents' house.
"We conducted a raid at the house as we had information that the couple was hiding there. But we only found her."
the couple face charges of child repression and employing a minor.
