Kolkata: Hasin Jahan, estranged wife of Indian cricket team pacer Mohammed Shami, has made yet another allegation against the cricketer and his family, saying that her case is similar to that of Kathua rape case, which rocked India.
Jahan was participating in a protest march to condemn the horrific Kathua rape case, where an eight-year-old girl was raped and killed in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
"Those who are guilty of the crime should be punished. Even my case is similar to this. But I am alive. Even I have been subjected to what happened in that case," said Jahan earlier this week during the protest.
"They had planned to rape me, kill me and then dump my body in a forest. It's been almost two months that I am fighting against all this," she added.
Jahan had taken the cricketing world by storm in last month as she accused Shami of having extra-marital affairs. She took to her Facebook to share the photos of cricketer’s alleged WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger chats with several women.
Jahan later claimed that Shami’s mother and brother tortured her and tried to kill her and Shami, on his return from India’s tour to South Africa, beat her. She went on to claim that Shami wanted her to have physical relations with his brother.
While Shami had denied all the allegations, he was interrogated by Kolkata police earlier this month after Jahan filed a written complaint against the cricketer. An 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.
Jahan filed a case at the Alipore court against the Team India pacer, demanding Rs 15 lakh as maintenance charges for her and her daughter Aairah....
