Needing five off the final delivery, Dinesh Karthik smashed Bangladeshi bowler Soumya Sarkar over extra-cover for a six, helping India pull off an incredible chase in the Nidahas T20 Tri-series final on March 18 in Sri Lanka. Great win for India , but not for Adel Shikder.
In a video that was shot by the friends of Adel Shikder, three people are seen slitting the throat of Shikder. Blood can be seen on his throat and the wound could be seen in the footage filmed with a mobile phone, the police have reported.
Police said his throat was hidden behind a person when someone was purportedly slitting it. Later, they used red fruit juice around his body to make it look like blood. The video was shared on social media and it went viral. Shikder was arrested for faking his death to save 150,000 taka (USD 1,807 or Rs 1,17,248) which he had lost in a bet over the Bangladesh-India final.
Police said Shikder had sent the video to his family and the winner of the bet ‘Prokash’ via Imo to dodge the payment. One of his partners in crime, Imran, a makeup man at the Film Development Corporation in Dhaka, was arrested earlier. Shikder, impersonating as an anonymous caller by changing his voice, telephoned his younger brother and said “the body was lying in Chittagong”. Police arrested Imran after watching the video. He told the police that they had shot the video as Shikder had paid him 2,000 taka. Police arrested Shikder when he returned home. He was an alleged thief and had duped a jeweller earlier
