Actor Tanvir Tonu held over rape allegation
Police arrested film actor and model Tanvir Rahman Tonu from his Mirpur residence on Friday following a case filed against him for allegedly raping a woman on May 6.

Mokammel Hossain, Inspector (Operation) of Rupnagar Police Station, said that Tonu was nabbed from his house after the victim, an executive of a private firm, had filed a rape complaint against him.

She alleged in the case that Tonu called her at his house at Rupnagar in Mirpur on May 6 while his wife was outside and raped her in presence of one of Tonu's friends.

On Saturday morning, police sent Tonu to Metropolitan Magistrates' Court seeking five-day remand plea for interrogation and the court will deliver its order in this regard later in the day, police sources said.

Tonu appeared in a number of movies including 'Full and Final', 'Gunda', and 'Khas Zamin'.

He also played the role of Satish in 'Karmaphal' based on the short story by Rabindranath Tagore, reports UNB.
