Embroiled in a major controversy, Mohammed Shami  received support from his father-in-law, Mohamed Hasan. Shami’s wife, Hasin Jahan and daughter of Mr. Hasan registered FIR against her husband in as many as 7 charges, that include an attempt to murder and rape. Hasin’s father in an interview to abplive.com, has said denied all such allegations against his son-in-law. He said: “We are unaware of the reasons behind the dispute between Hasin Jahan and Mohammed Shami. We got to know about it through the media. Only Shami and Hasin would be able to tell what has actually happened.”

He further adds, “We don’t know much about the controversy. Shami is a good person. He speaks less. We had no doubts about him. Only God knows how things have turned ugly.” He also spoke about his daughter, saying: “Hasin never deviated from what she wanted to achieve in her life and remained focused since her school life.”

Last evening to abplive.com, Shami made an emotional appeal to his wife. He said: “I’m devastated, the allegations came as a shock to me, I will still stand as a wall to protect the image of my wife and daughter. I don’t think anybody can understand what I’m going through right now. I can only hope that she understands my side of the story and resolves it.”

Shami’s case has been handed over to Kolkata Police’s Lal Bazaar Detective Department.
