India pacer Mohammed Shami's estranged wife Hasin Jahan wants to meet her cricketer husband after the former met with an accident while travelling from Dehradun to New Delhi. Shami suffered a minor injury on his forehead after his car collided with a truck on March 24. "My fight is against what he has done to me. But I do not want him to get hurt physically. He may not want me as a wife anymore. But I still feel for him and love him because he is my husband," Jahan told reporters here this evening. Shami has been booked under various non-bailable, including an attempt to murder, and bailable sections of the Indian Penal Code after Jahan's complaint to the police of domestic violence and infidelity against him.
"I will pray to the God that he recovers quickly," Jahan told reporters on Monday evening.
She said she was eager to meet Shami along with their daughter but all her attempts to contact him over phone went "unanswered".
"I have been trying to get in touch with my husband.
But he is not responding to my calls to his phone. Even his family members were not telling me where he is currently located. I feel helpless," she said.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India cleared Shami's central contract yesterday after its anti-corruption unit exonerated him of corruption charges levelled by Jahan.
Shami has been given a Grade 'B' annual contract, which will make him richer by Rs 3 crore. He will also be free to play in the Indian Premier League for his franchise - the Delhi Daredevils starting April 7.
Jahan had met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in connection with her allegation against Shami.
After the meeting, Jahan has been provided with security from Kolkata police.
