Kolkata: Hasin Jahan filed a case at the Alipore court against the Team India pacer, demanding Rs 15 lakh as maintenance charges for her and her daughter Aairah.
In the petition, Hasin demanded that she needed Rs 10 lakh to run her family and Rs 5 lakh for Aairah’s expenses. The third judicial magistrate of the Alipore court, who was hearing the case filed under Domestic Violence Act 2005 has asked Shami and other members of his family to appear in court within 15 days.
The lawyer even told before the court that Shami earns around Rs 100 crore per year and hence it would not be a problem for him to part with the money. “It is his duty to take care of the family and pay for the wife and child’s expenses. Hence we demanded the money — Rs 7 lakh per month for Jahan and Rs 3 lakh per month for the child,” the lawyer added.
Earlier on Tuesday, Jahan had arrived at the court and lodged a complaint against Shami along with his mother Anjuman Ara Begum, his sister Sabina Anjum, his brother Mohammed Hasib Ahamed and Hasib’s wife Shama Parveen.
Jahan’s lawyer also added that since Shami earns so much money from cricket, it should not be a problem to pay some amount to his client as maintenance fee.
“It is his duty to take care of the family and pay for the wife and child’s expenses. Hence we demanded the money — Rs 7 lakh per month for Jahan and Rs 3 lakh per month for the child,” the lawyer added.
In her complaint, Jahan also requested the court to pass an order so that she did not lose custody of her daughter and demanded that Shami take responsibility.
“I am at a loss from all ends. I had been to Delhi to meet him and was there for seven days but I can never forget the way he behaved with me. He also met the daughter only once. Hence I demand the maintenance fee as he is not taking any of our responsibilities,” Jahan concluded.
