Hasin Jahan, wife of cricketer Mohammed Shami, was arrested in Amroha in Uttar Pradesh after she reached her husband's house and created a ruckus. She was later released on bail. Hasin Jahan reached her husband's house in Sahaspur Ali Nagar village late on Sunday night. When her in-laws asked her to leave, she locked herself and her child in a room.
Soon after, the police was called in and when the officials failed to control the situation, they took Hasin Jahan into custody.
Hasin Jahan said:
"I have come to my husband's house and I have every right to stay here. My in-laws are misbehaving with me and the police is supporting them. They should have arrested them but they are taking me to the police station."
In March, Mohammed Shami was charged under Section 498A (dowry harassment) and 354A (sexual harassment) of Indian Penal Code (IPC) by the Kolkata Police, which submitted the charge-sheet against Indian fast bowler before the court of Alipore police.
Hasin Jahan had filed a petition with the Alipore court stating domestic violence and demanded Rs. 7 lakh per month from him to maintain the family. The court accepted her plea and Rs. 80,000 was allocated for her daughter.
Mohammed Shami, however, has recovered well from his family issues to emerge as one of the top cricketers in the country. He performed exceptionally well on Australia and New Zealand tours and sealed the third pacer’s slot in the Indian team for the World Cup.
The fast bowler has been doing extremely well for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) and has played all 11 matches for them. Shami has accounted for 14 wickets so far and KXIP will be banking on him now to qualify for the playoffs. They are currently tied with SRH on 10 points and the two teams will be facing each other on Monday in Hyderabad.
