Dhaka : National Cricket team player Arafat Sunny arrested on charges of sharing and blackmailing a young woman by sharing her nude photographs via a fake account on social networking site Facebook.

The Mohammadpur police arrested Sunny in Dhaka’s Aminbazar area on Sunday morning.

Investigating official Mohammad police sub-inspector (SI) Yahya Ahmed said Arafat Sunny registered a fake account on the name of the woman, reported to be his girlfriend, and was blackmailing her by posting exposed photographs of her on Facebook.

The woman filed a case against Sunny under Information Technology (IT) Act with the Mohammadpur police on 5 January, said Yahya.

Arafat Sunny is a left-handed batsman and slow left arm spinner of Bangladesh National Cricket team. The 30-year-old player made his debut for Dhaka Division in 2001. He broke into Bangladesh’s one-day international (ODI) side in early 2014.

He took 2-31 in his first outing against Sri Lanka, but his two best performances came in November 2014 when he took 4-27 and 4-29 in two matches against Zimbabwe, in a good show of form ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.
