Arrest warrant issued against Indian pacer Mohammed Shami is put on stay by the district court on Monday. Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate (ACJM) on September 2 issued an arrest warrant against Shami that was in connection with a case filed by his estranged wife Hasin Jahan for domestic violence.
Shami after the issuance of the arrest warrant challenged the ACJM order in the District and Sessions Court, where District and Sessions Judge Rai Chattopadhyay stayed the warrant issued against him.
Shami’s counsel Sheikh Salim Rahaman said in a statement that failing to appear before a court on summons, a warrant being issued by the magistrate. He further said that the ACJM instead of issuing the summons had issued a warrant of arrest against Shami.
