Internet star Hero Alom has been detained for allegedly assaulting his wife.

Alom was detained after his father-in-law Saiful Islam lodged a complaint against him at 10pm on Wednesday.

Confirming the matter, Bogra Sadar police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) SM Badiuzzaman said: “Both Alom and his in-laws were called to the police station to discuss the matter and later Alom was detained based on Saiful’s complaint.”

“He (Alom) will be questioned further and our investigation is on,” he added.

Earlier, a domestic dispute spiralled into a brawl, with Alom injuring his wife which required her to be hospitalized. His wife’s family also beat him up in turn.

“Alom filed a case against his in-laws on Wednesday morning, and Saiful filed another case against him in the afternoon,” OC Badiuzzaman also said.

Bogra’s Ashraful Hossen Alom, who rose to international fame under the alias of Hero Alom with the help of music videos and short films on Facebook and YouTube, had tried his hand at politics during the last general election, but was snubbed.

In the complaint against him, his father-in-law alleged that Alom thrashed his wife for not paying dowry. Saiful also denied all charges of attacking Alom.

Alom, in his complaint, said that following a domestic dispute with his wife, five people including his wife and father-in-law attacked him around 8pm on Tuesday. 

Alom’s wife Sumi, while undergoing treatment at a local hospital, told the Dhaka Tribune that he had returned to Bogra from Dhaka after two months.

She said: “I heard a rumour that he had married another woman in Dhaka. On Tuesday night, he was talking to a woman over the phone for hours. It bothered me a lot and I asked him about it. He did not like my questioning and attacked me.

“He is not a good husband. He seldom checks up on his family, and does not take care of us at all.”
