After two years of marriage, there has been a change in the movement of his wife Ripa Akhter.” At one stage, the news spread in the area that Ripa Akhter became reckless and fell in love with a man named Zafar Alam of Noakhali district.

One day, Ripa Akhter was caught red-handed by her boyfriend in an abusive situation. Despite repeated attempts, Ripa Akhter could not stop their illicit association but became more reckless by deceiving the people of the society and the area.

After returning, she has been hanging out with her ex-boyfriend Zafar Alam in public without caring about anyone in the area.
