Few years back Indian pacer Mohammed Shami got involved in a controversy. On March 8, 2018, Shami’s wife Haseen Jahan filed an FIR at Jadavpur Police Station against her husband, her brother-in-law, and other in-laws for allegedly torturing her and behaving cruelly. It came to light that multiple charges were filed against the defendant.
Shami is certainly one of the best fast bowlers in world cricket at the moment. However, he recently grabbed the headlines. On Wednesday, September 20, Shami appeared before the court. It was noted that the pacer’s lawyer had placed a bail plea. As a result, after hearing his case, the court granted bail to Shami and his brother in the five-year-old case. This has come as a huge relief given India is gearing up for the World Cup 2023.
“Police have filed a charge sheet against Md Shami and his brother. The law states that once the charge sheet is submitted, the accused will have to appear before the court and seek bail in self defense. Accordingly we appeared before the court today and moved a bail prayer. The court has granted bail to both the siblings. Shami will henceforth participate in the upcoming legal proceedings in this case as required in law,” Shami’s counsel Salim Rahaman was quoted as saying by The Telegraph.
