Tama Mirza was tortured by her husband for dowry

Publish: 01:43 PM, 22 Dec, 2021


The court has fixed January 5 for the submission of the investigation report in the case filed against husband Hisham Chisti for beating actress Mirza Farzana Yasmin Tama (Tama Mirza) for dowry.

The investigation report of the case was scheduled to be submitted on Tuesday (December 21). But as the investigating officer of the case did not submit the report, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Nivana Khair set a new date.

Earlier, on the night of December 5, 2020, Tama Mirza filed a case against Hisham Chishti at the Badda Police Station on the charge of the Prevention of Women and Child Repression Act, including the Domestic Violence Act, Digital Security Act, and assault for dowry. Case No. 8 (12) 20.

Hisham Chishti, a Canadian expatriate, got married to Tama Mirza a year and a half ago. After marriage, Hisham used to beat Tama Mirza for no reason. The people of the in-laws' house asked for a dowry of TK 20 lakh from Tama's father for business. Thinking of her daughter's happiness, Tama's parents gave 10 lakh rupees to Hisham at different times. A few days later, Hisham beats Tama again. Exhausted by the torture, Tama moved to her father's house.

Complaining about the case, Tama further said, "Hisham came to my house on December 5, 2020, at around 3 pm. When my parents came from the next room after hearing me screaming, Hisham also beat them. With the vase in the house, he hit my mother's back and head and various parts of my body. As a result, I was injured along with my parents."

‘Then Hisham intimidated and threatened my parents and me. He threatened to kill us and publish many pictures and videos of my personal moments with him on social media and in the media.’

It may be mentioned that on May 7, 2019, Tama Mirza married Hisham Chisti, a Canadian citizen of Bangladeshi descent. Although Tama Mirza is currently in the country, Hisham Chishti is in Canada.

Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt were spotted together for the first time after their intimate wedding at Ranbir's home last month.

Both were twinning in black casuals and greeted the paparazzi before as they were leaving in a car after shooting for a project together. 

They are looking forward to the release of their film Brahmastra this year.

Ranbir was in a black tee and printed black pyjamas, along with a black cap and white shoes. He showed the thumbs-up sign to the photographers as they called him by his name, waved to them and even blew a kiss before getting into his car.

Alia, who was in a black shirt and pants, also waved to the paparazzi before joining him in the car.

Fans of the two were happy to see them together for the first time after their wedding. A fan wrote in the comments section, "Alia ji ke hubby." Some fans also made funny enquiries about the highly-guarded wedding. A fan asked, "Are Ranbir shaadi party mein Dahi Chawal tha ki nahin Alia ko bahut pasand hain (Was curd rice served at the wedding since it's Alia's favourite)?" Another asked, "Rakhi sawant ko shaadi me jutey chipane ke 1 crore rupees milgaye kya (Did Rakhi Sawant get ₹1 crore for shoe-hiding ceremony)?" A fan even asked if they could "carpool" so as to join them in the car.

Alia had shared the first official photos of the ceremony on her Instagram page. Sharing intimate details of the wedding, she wrote, "Today, surrounded by our family and friends, at home … in our favourite spot - the balcony we've spent the last 5 years of our relationship - we got married. With so much already behind us, we can't wait to build more memories together … memories that are full of love, laughter, comfortable silences, movie nights, silly fights, wine delights and Chinese bites." She thanked everyone for their love.

Besides Brahmastra, Ranbir has Shamshera, Animal and an untitled Luv Ranjan film in pipeline. Alia has Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, her Hollywood debut film and Jee Le Zaraa in her kitty. She also has Darlings.
