Famous Bangladeshi actress Mahiya Mahi's husband Rakib Sarkar has returned home from Saudi Arabia amidst the arrest warrant issued against him. He landed around 10 am in the morning at Hazrat Shahjalal international Airport on Sunday.

The "Agnee" actress shared a picture of welcoming her husband along with the caption, "Alhamdulillah" from her varified social media account. In the picture, she was seen to welcome her husband with a bouquet of flowers.

Rakib Sarkar's lawyer, Anowar Sadat told the local media that Sarkar will be dealing with the 'false charges' legally. However, he couldn't confirm Rakib's bail application process as of yet. They will make a decision about seeking bail soon.

Earlier on, Mahiya Mahi was arrested from the airport on Friday and was granted bail later on in the evening. Two cases were filed against her and husband Rakib Sarkar, one under Digital Security Act, while the other case was filed by businessman Ismail Hossain—against 28 people including the couple—on charges of assault, vandalism and forcibly occupying land.
