Following the accusations of death threats, Shami released an audio tape in his defense, in which he can be heard saying, "Don’t want to talk about evidence. I want a solution to this issue. Let bygones be bygones and tell me how to conclude this? How can we save this family?"
In response, Shami's wife asked him to apologize in public and make sure he doesn't cheat her again.
"Apologise in public as I know you have done wrong. I won’t compromise as I have all the proofs against you.
"Even if I forgive you, make sure you don’t cheat again. You have to take the responsibility of the family. Make a commitment and give due respect to your wife," she added.
According to Jahan, she was at the receiving end of constant abuses and threats through social media accounts since her differences with Shami became public. She also sought West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's support on the issue.
"She is feeling insecure while going somewhere due to a massive number of threats and abuses she has been receiving on the social media. The accounts may or may not be fake. Today (Tuesday), she went to Kolkata Police headquarters Lalbazar and asked for personal security as she is feeling extremely insecure while going somewhere," her lawyer Zakir Hussain said.
"Jahan also wants emotional support from hon'ble Chief Minister on the issue. She has high regards for her since the Chief Minister herself is a woman with a great heart. So, she said she would be really happy if she can meet her (Banerjee) and tell her about the entire issue," he added.
Jahan filed a complaint against Shami and four others on March 8 on charges of domestic violence, attempt to murder, rape and criminal intimidation. She also accused the cricketer and his family of physical and mental torture.
