After this, a BCCI official said that we haven’t take any action against Mohammed Shami until we can’t see the charge sheet.
“Yes, we do understand that an arrest warrant has been issued. However, don’t really see us getting involved in this at this point in time. Once we see the charge sheet, we can decide how things stand, and if the BCCI constitution calls for any action. But at this point in time, I would say it is too early to take a call on the matter,” speaking to IANS, A BCCI official said.
Speaking to the media on August 29, Hasin Jahan Said,
“I thank all of you for coming here. I have called you today because today is the date for filing the charge sheet. No arrest warrant has been issued against him nor has he taken any anticipatory bail. Today the hearing of our case has happened, and it was put on reserve by the judge. Like small YouTube channels are showing that Shami Ahmed has got clean cheat by the Alipore court, but it has been not like that. All the cases that I have filed are still going on in the court, and those are just getting delayed.
“Police have not arrested Shami Ahmed as I have filed cases against him. Police have harassed me rather than him. This suggests that Shami Ahmed can do anything with any common people, but he will not get punishment as he is an international cricketer. Some (sections of the )media are just producing news against me for their own agenda.
“I am all alone and fighting my battle alone. Today just because I have no strong family background or source of income like the wives of other cricketers, I have to face these kinds of problem. This long duration of the case is very difficult for me, but today I have media with me who will listen to me, but what will happen to those who have no one to listen. This has happened to me just because this is India. If it was any other country, this thing had never happened to me. The police in UP has harassed me immensely, but this has happened only because this is India.”
“This means that I will not get justice. I am fighting this battle for the last one and a half year and will continue this fight till I get Justice. Shami can kill me anytime, and you all will remain silent because you think that I am guilty. My children are small; she will not be able to fight for me,” Hasin Jahan said.
