The order by the Alipore Court in Kolkata that needed India pacer Mohammed Shami to surrender within 15 days from September 2, no longer holds good as his lawyer Salim Rahaman has obtained a stay from a higher court.
Speaking to IANS, Salim said that the move was in any case against the legal process and there was no way that Shami could have been asked to surrender. The first move had to be that of summoning either Shami or his representative.
“The order didn’t hold much ground because while you can summon a person, you cannot issue a surrender notice. We have got a stay on the matter from a higher court and the rest of the plan of action you will get to know tomorrow,” he said.
