The ugly dispute between Indian cricketer Mohammed Shami and his wife Hasin Jahan took a new turn on Tuesday evening. The cricketer's wife has now alleged that Shami is threatening her over phone.
Hasin on Tuesday also claimed that the cricketer is using different phone numbers to intimidate his wife.
"Mohammed Shami is threatening me," said Hasin. "He is calling and sending threats also. I will not compromise instead will fight till I get justice.
"Shami sent messages from other numbers also. He is threatening me over WhatsApp calls. He said you should be ashamed for doing this to me and my family," added Hasin.
Shami's name was missing from the list of BCCI contracted players released last week and Hasin believes that pacer wants to settle the dispute inside the family to save his cricketing career.
"He wants to save his career and that is why he is planning compromise," said Hasin.

Shami has meanwhile denied all allegations, claiming someone is misleading his wife.
"There have been many accusations which are increasing day-by-day. I don't want to give an explanation about it and I want it to be investigated thoroughly. Hasin and her family have been saying that we will sit and sort out all issues, but I don't know who has been misleading her," Shami had earlier said.
The entire episode has hit Shami really hard. Apart from being left out of the new BCCI central contracts, his participation in this year's Indian Premier League could also be in jeopardy.
Shami, has however, said he was willing to settle the dispute inside the family while Hasin, in a press conference on Sunday, said her husband has crossed all limits.
