Unmarried certification for married!

A Senior Judicial Magistrate's court here issued arrest warrant against a union parishad (UP) chairman and three others on April 23, following a case filed by a dead Malaysia expatriate's widow on charge of arranging a fake 'unmarried certificate' for her late husband to deprive her of the compensation money.

Late Al-Amin was married with Zumaiya Akter, 20, daughter of Mon Mia of Laxmimora village under Bijoynagar upazila,  on November 29 in 2016, but Pattan UP Chairman Md Quamruzzaman Ratan issued a certificate mentioning him as unmarried, Zumaiya alleged in the case filed on December 5 last year.

“My husband died while working in a Malaysian company on April 4, 2017. But the UP chairman on August 29 issued an unmarried certificate, with signature and thumb impressions of three witnesses – Al-Amin's mother Amena Khatun, local health assistant Atiqul Islam and one Harun Master of Laxmimora village,” she said.
