Happy filed a case in Mirpur Police Station Dec 13 alleging that Rubel had engaged her in a physical relationship after promising her marriage. But Rubel claimed that Happy was "blackmailing" him. The High Court granted Rubel a four-week anticipatory bail Dec 15. He appeared before the Metropolitan Magistrate's Court Jan 8 and sought an extension but the court sent him to prison instead. Uncertainty loomed large over the paceman's participation in the World Cup. Rubel was released from prison three days later after Metropolitan Sessions Judge Court granted his bail plea Sunday.
Happy also filed a writ petition in court Jan 5 seeking Rubel's expulsion from the Bangladesh team. The court threw out her petition but Happy said she would file a case against the scrapping. The Bangladesh national cricket team will fly off in January-end to Australia for the World Cup.
