Jahan's lawyer Zakir Hussain informed that the police appeared to have filed charges under two counts.

Shami's lawyer Salim Rahaman said they will respond soon, adding that the police had dropped three of the main allegations, including of rape by Shami's elder brother rape, attempt to murder and physical assault.

"The only two sections slapped against my client are that of domestic violence and sexual abuse. Let summons be issued against us and we will also respond accordingly," Rahaman said.
