Film actress Shamsunnahar Smrity, popularly known as Pori Moni, has filed a case with the Savar Police Station against businessman Nasir U Mahmood and five others on charge of their attempt to rape and murder her.

Pori Moni filed an attempt to rape and murder case with the Savar Police Station Monday morning, Sub-Inspector Sadruzzaman, duty officer of the police station, told the Business Insider Bangladesh.

The media cell of the police headquarters can provide further details in the regard, the police official said.

The Dhallywood star made a plea seeking justice from Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina through a status on her verified Facebook page on Sunday evening, claiming she was assaulted and alleging attempted rape and murder.

The popular actress addressed the post to prime minister, stating that she is asking for justice as a loyal citizen of the country.

“I have been physically assaulted and even resulted to attempted rape and murder. I want justice. I have asked for help from so many people, however, they just listened and commented that they'll 'look into it' while the truth is that no one has helped me yet,” Pori Moni stated through that post.

In her post, she has mentioned that she tried to contact the police station and even IGP Benazir Ahmed, but yet to receive any formal help regarding her complaints.

“I haven't found justice in the last three or four days. Where I can find justice? I am a woman and actress but firstly, I am a human being. I cannot remain quiet regarding what happened with me today,” she added.

In her post, she then addressed Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina as her ‘mother’ writing, “I was about two and a half years old when my mother died. Today I need a mother more than anytime else. I have never seen you quietly accepting any injustice. I need you, I need your help to stay alive. Please save me, mother.”
