The estranged wife of Mohammed Shami, Hasin Jahan claimed that West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee had assured her that she would get justice. Meanwhile, Jahan met Banerjee for a brief meeting earlier today to raise her grief.
She met the chief minister at the state assembly premises for 20 minutes at around 3 PM.
“I handed over to the chief minister a three-page appeal detailing whatever I had to say. She gave me a patient hearing and assured me that she would go through my complaints and extend necessary cooperation. The chief minister also told me that the law will take its course and I will get justice,” Jahan told reporters.
Previously, Jahan applied for the residence of Banerjee requesting a meeting with her. She said she wanted the chief minister’s support in her fight against her husband.
However, based on Jahan’s complaint, Kolkata Police registered an FIR slapping non-bailable warrant against the India cricketer. On March 19, Jahan made a confidential statement to a judicial magistrate under Section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure.
Although Shami and his family members have tried to settle the dispute out-of-court, Jahan has ruled the possibility. Meanwhile, Jahan alleged that her husband has stopped paying her regular expenses.
However, yesterday BCCI cleared Shami of match-fixing charges and handed him a Grade B contract.
