Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami has been ordered by a Kolkata court to pay monthly maintenance of Rs 1 lakh 30 thousand to his ex-wife Hasin Jahan.
Of the Rs 130,000, Rs 50,000 will be personal alimony for Hasin Jahan and the remaining Rs 80,000 will go towards the maintenance of her daughter, who lives with her.
In 2018, Hasin Jahan filed a lawsuit in court demanding a monthly alimony of Rs 10 lakhs, of which Rs 7,00,000 would be his personal alimony and the remaining Rs 3,00,000 would be spent on his daughter’s upkeep.
His lawyer, Mriganka Mistry, informed the court that as per the Indian Pacer’s income tax return for the fiscal year 2020-21, his annual income for that fiscal year exceeded Rs 7 crore and he sought monthly income on the basis of the same. . The alimony of Rs 10 lakh was not unreasonable.
However, Shami’s lawyer, Selim Rehman, claimed that since Hasin Jahan herself earned a steady source of income working as a professional fashion model, the demand for such high alimony was not justified.
Finally, after hearing both sides, the lower court on Monday fixed the monthly alimony amount at Rs 1.30 lakh. While expressing her gratitude for the court’s leadership, Hasin Jahan stated that she would have been relieved if the monthly alimony amount was higher. Until the time of filing the report, there was no response from the Indian fast bowler on this charge.
After the Indian team’s victory against Pakistan in the Asian Cup in September last year, Hasin Jahan took to social media to share a photo of Hardik Pandya, who had won India with a six, and attacked Shami .
