Mohammad Shami’s wife Hasin Jahan has filed a case against the Indian pacer at Alipore court on Tuesday demanding Rs 10 lakh maintenance fee per month for her and her daughter.
Hearing the case filed under Domestic Violence Act 2005, the third judicial magistrate of the Alipore court asked Shami and others against whom the complaint was filed, to be present before the court within 15 days from the receipt of the summons and give their versions.
Jahan’s lawyer said: “We approached the court of additional chief judicial magistrate who sent us to the court of the third judicial magistrate for a quick hearing. The magistrate heard our petition and passed an order show-causing the opposite party asking why an ex-parte order would not be passed against them if they don’t appear before the court within 15 days of receipt of the summons. The next date of hearing is May 4.”
He added: “This case is different from the one we had filed before the police. Shami had not paid a single penny to Jahan since she had raised the issue. He had given her a Rs 1lakh cheque that later bounced. Now she has no money to pay for the monthly expenses
Police have already been to Shami’s village at Amroha and have spoken to his neighbours and some relatives but didn’t question Shami.
