KOLKATA: Estranged wife of Indian pacer Mohammed Shami lost the maintenance litigation on Friday. Shami's wife Hasin Jahan had earlier demanded Rs. 7 lakh per month as family maintenance but Alipore Court refused Hasin's claim.
However, judge Neha Sharma approved the maintenance claim for their daughter. Shami has been asked to pay Rs. 80,000 per month for the daughter.
Shami's advocate said that his client has been willing to pay the daughter's maintenance since the beginning. Shami, however, refused to pay for his wife's maintenance as she has started modeling and acting.
Hasin's advocated defended her by saying she is trying to revive her profession however it has not been started yet. Hasin is now planning to move to higher court.
Earlier in April this year, Hasin demanded a compensation of Rs. 10 lakh per month which meant 7 lakh for the family and three lakh for their daughter.
Hasin Jahan had filed the domestic violence case against Shami, his mother, elder brother, sister and sister-in-law.
Indian cricketer Mohammad Shami’s wife Hasin Jahan has demanded a monthly compensation of Rs 10 lakh per month for the interim period when the case is on. Hasin Jahan has demanded Rs 7 lakh as family maintenance while Rs three lakh per month for the child.
According to the lawyer of the estranged wife of the Indian pacer, the court has understood the significance of the litigation and has hence decided to hear it on an urgent basis. He said that the court has also asked Shami to clarify his point immediately.
Expressing confidence about winning the case, the lawyer confirmed that Hasin Jahan has filed the domestic violence case against Shami, his mother, elder brother, sister and sister-in-law. Apart from the allegations of domestic violence and extra-marital affair, she had also alleged that the cricketer had taken money from a Pakistani woman named Alishba on the insistence of an England-based businessman, Mohammad Bhai.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), however, cleared Shami's central contract after its anti-corruption unit exonerated him of corruption charges leveled by Jahan.
In March, Hasin Jahan had met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in connection with the case.
Mamata had met the cricketer's wife at the state Assembly for around 15 minutes and heard Jahan's complaint against Shami.
