MNA National Desk: The home ministry has removed Additional Commissioner Mizanur Rahman from the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) over allegations of abducting a woman and later marrying her forcefully.

Rahman, a deputy inspector general or DIG, has come under fire after the incident was reported in the media.

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan told the media on Tuesday that an inquiry has been opened.

Meanwhile, the DIG denied having any marital relation with a certain Mariam Akhter, whom he reportedly married last year.

According a Mariam Akhter’s family, the police official reportedly married the banker on 16 July last year at the office of a marriage registrar (Kazi) in the city’s Maghbazar area and the mohr (alimony) was set at Tk 5 million. But, Mizanur wanted her to keep it a secret till 2019.
