Bangladesh cricketer Robel Hossain remanded in actress rape

DHAKA:Bangladesh cricketer Rubel Hossain,who has been named in the country World cup squad,was behind bars Thursday after being remanded in custody over allegations that he raped an actress.

A magistrate in the capital Dhaka delivered the order after age 19 year old Naznin Akter happy lodged a complaint of rape and a false  promise of marriage against the cricketer last month.

The court decision puts a huge question mark over the 24 year old appearance in the next month world cup in Australia and New zealand after selectors picked him in the 15 man squad last weekend.

NO data has been set for the next hearing.

Police last month launched a probe after happy lodged a complaint with police that the fast bowler had backed away from an earlier pledge to marry her after having months long ''intimate affair''.

After hearing and complaint a court ordered medical test on happy and both the alleged victim and Hossain to undergo DNA test.

Under Bangladesh law   anyone who makes what is considered a false marriage proposal is liable to criminal prosecution.
