NEW DELHI: Indian cricketer Mohammad Shami’s wife Hasin Jahan who is now unconcerned from him, has demanded a monthly compensation of Rs 10 lakh per month for the interim period when the case is continuing. Hasin Jahan has demanded Rs 7 lakh as family maintenance while Rs three lakh per month for their child respectively.
According to the lawyer of the unconcerned wife of the India’s fast bowler, the court has understood the significance of the judicial proceeding and has hence decided to hear this plea on the urgent basis. He said that the court has also asked Shami to clarify his statement instantly.
Expressing confidence about winning the case, the lawyer confirmed that Hasin Jahan has filed the domestic violence case against Shami, his mother, elder brother, sister and sister-in-law.
In March, Hasin Jahan had met WB Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee at the state Assembly where CM Banerjee heard Hasin’s complaint against Shami. Hasin Jahan had said reporters: “She listened to me. The Chief Minister was kind and empathetic. She has given assurances of support.”
Apart from the allegations of domestic violence and extra-marital affair, she had also alleged that the cricketer had taken money from a Pakistani woman named Alishba on the insistence of an England-based businessman, Mohammad Bhai.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), however, cleared Shami’s central contract after its anti-corruption unit exonerated him of corruption charges levelled by Jahan.
Kolkata Police had registered cases under non-bailable sections 307, 498-A and 376.
Five persons, including Shami, have been booked under bailable sections 323 and 506 among others.
