A district court put a stay on an arrest warrant against Indian Cricket team player Mohammad Shami in connection with a case of alleged domestic violence filed by his estranged wife Hasin Jahan. Shami had challenged the Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate (ACJM) order in the District and Sessions Court. District and Sessions Judge Rai Chattopadhyay stayed the warrant issued against Shami by the ACJM.
Sheikh Salim Rahaman, Shami’s counsel claimed that failing to appear before a court on summons may invite a warrant being issued by the magistrate. Rahaman said, “It was pleaded before Judge Chattopadhyay that after filing of chargesheet in a case, the magistrate has to issue summons against the accused. The ACJM had issued a warrant of arrest against Shami, instead of issuing summons.”
The ACJM had issued the arrest warrant against cricketer Shami, saying he should surrender within 15 days of returning to the country. Shami was on the West Indies tour with the Indian cricket team when the warrant was issued. Hasin Jahan had filed the case of domestic violence against Shami and some of his family members in early 2018.
