Kolkata: After a round of allegations, denials, press conferences and interviews, a twist in the Mohammed Shami-Hasin Jahan saga is on the cards as it is now learnt that the family members of the Indian cricketer are going to meet Jahan’s lawyer on Monday for an out-of-court settlement on Monday.
Hasin Jahan took the cricket fraternity by storm, last week, as she launched a sensational attack on her husband and Indian pacer Mohammed Shami, claiming that he has multiple extra-marital affairs. She also took to her Facebook to share photos of Shami’s alleged WhatsApp and Facebook messenger chats with a number of girls.
Jahan later claimed that she was tortured by Shami’s brother and mother and her brother tried to kill her. She followed it up yet another round of claims, saying Shami wanted her to have physical relations with his brother and he would have been involved in match-fixing.
While Shami, whose BCCI contract was withheld following the allegations, denied all the claims, saying she was brainwashed and acting under someone’s influence and he will do everything to protect her and their daughter Aairah.
The Indian cricketer has time and again made it clear that he and Hasin should come back together for the sake of their daughter. It is now reported that Shami’s family member will meet Jahan’s lawyer Zakir Hussain to discuss the possibility of out of court settlement.
“Today, Mohammed Shami’s relatives, including his uncle and aunt, are coming to Kolkata to have a meeting with me,” Hussain told News18.
“They expressed their desire to meet so that the issues between the couple could be resolved. There are enough reasons for Hasina to expose Shami for his acts. We will try to find a way out so that everyone could live with dignity and peace,” Hussain added, while stating that the scheduled meet could take place at his central Kolkata office,” he added.
Earlier, it was reported Kolkata police have asked BCCI, who have put Shami's contract on hold, for Indian team's and Shami's itinerary details on South Africa tour after Jahan had claimed that Shami stayed back in Dubai to meet a girl from Pakistan on Indian team's return from South Africa.
Jahan had filed a written complaint and a FIR was lodged against Shami and his four family members in Kolkata's Jadavpur police station under several Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections, including section 498A, which amounts to cruelty to a woman by her husband or his relatives.
The other charges recorded against Shami are under Section 307 – attempt to murder, Section 323 – punishment for voluntarily causing hurt, Section 376 – rape, Section 506 – criminal intimidation, Section 328 and Section 34....
