Senior team India pacer Mohammed Shami is back in form. He played his role in winning the second ODI against New Zealand in the ongoing series. Shami was the top wicket-taker in the match with three wickets. He gave the first big breakthrough by taking the first wicket in the very first over.
His performance started a debate that Mohammed Shami might have sealed his spot in the ODI team that would be picked for the upcoming World Cup. However, his personal space is not as great as the orders issued by the court came as a big surprise. A local court shocked him.
A local court in Kolkata gave orders directing Mohammed Shami to pay alimony of Rs 1.30 lakhs to his estranged wife, Hasin Jahan every month. Hearing a petition filed by Jahan the court gave the orders. While 50k will go as the personal alimony to Hasin Jahan the rest of the amount will go to the maintenance cost of their daughter.
Shami’s lawyer told the court that Hasin Jahan is working as a fashion designer and has a steady income and there is no requirement for alimony. Jahan’s lawyer said that Shami is earning a big amount every year and giving alimony in lakhs will not be a big issue.
After hearing the arguments of both sides, the local court in Kolkata said that Mohammed Shami should pay a monthly alimony of Rs 1.30 lakh every month. Hasin Jahan reacted to the verdict and said that she is welcoming the orders given by the court in this regard.
Shami and Hasin Jahan met through IPL and fell for each other. They tied the knot in April 2014. The couple was blessed with a daughter. Later Hasin Jahan started making stunning allegations against Shami from sexual assault to domestic violence.
She even registered a complaint against Shami and leveled allegations that he played a role in match-fixing. This forced the cricket administrative body Board of Control for Cricket in India(BCCI) to constitute a body to look into the matter. He was given a clean chit and his contract was reinstalled.
