Kolkata’s Alipore Court has granted bail to Indian bowler Mohammed Shami in a domestic violence case filed by his wife Hasin Jahan. Shami’s wife had filed a case of domestic violence against him in March 2018.
Two weeks ahead of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023, Kolkata’s Alipore court has granted bail to Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami in a domestic violence case filed by his wife Hasin Jahan. Shami’s elder brother Mohammad Haseeb was also granted bail in the same case on Tuesday 19 September. The court granted bail. Both brothers appeared in court, where their lawyer applied for bail, which was eventually granted.
A case was registered against Shami in 2018
In March 2018, Mohammed Shami’s wife had filed a case of domestic violence. In his complaint, he had accused Shami of assaulting him. He also objected to Shami having a relationship with any other woman after marriage.
The police also interrogated Shami and his elder brother in the case and issued arrest warrants against both of them. However, Kolkata Court stayed the warrant. After this, Haseen Jahan approached the Calcutta High Court challenging the order of the lower court. However, the High Court also upheld the order of the lower court.
Shami went to Supreme Court
Subsequently, he challenged the high court order in the Supreme Court, which recently referred the case to the same lower court. A fresh hearing of the case began in the trial court, which finally granted bail to the cricketer in the case on Tuesday.
In January this year, the court had ordered to pay maintenance allowance of Rs 1.30 lakh per month to Indian fast bowler Hasin Jahan. Out of this Rs. 50,000 personal maintenance allowance and the remaining Rs. Rs 80,000 was for the expenses of his daughter who lived with him. Shami will be seen playing in the 3-match ODI series between India and Australia starting from September 22. He is also a part of India’s World Cup team.
