(Kolkata): India pacer Mohammed Shami’s wife Hasin Jahan has sent the documents related to her complaints against her husband to the BCCI’s Committee of Administrators (CoA) chairman Vinod Rai for a scrutiny into her allegations of corruption, her lawyer said today.
“We have sent the details of the complaint that was lodged at Lalbazar (Kolkata Police headquarters) and the copy of the FIR to Vinod Rai,” Jahan’s lawyer Zakir Hussain said.
Jahan earlier claimed that Shami had taken money from a Pakistani woman named Alishba on the insistence of an England-based businessman, Mohammad Bhai, which aired the speculations of match fixing.
Rai has informed BCCI’s Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) chief Neeraj Kumar to look into the corruption allegations made against Shami by his wife.
Previously on 7th March, in a series of posts on Facebook and WhatsApp chats, Jahan accused Shami of cheating on her. She had earlier alleged that Shami abused her physically and mentally.
Hasin Jaha lodged a FIR in Kolkata’s Jadavpur police station under several Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections, including section 498A, which amounts to cruelty to a woman by her husband or his relatives. The other charges recorded against Shami are under Section 307 – attempt to murder, Section 323 – punishment for voluntarily causing hurt, Section 376 – rape, Section 506 – criminal intimidation, Section 328 and Section 34.
Shami’s mother Anjuman-Ara-Begum, brother Hasib Ahamed, Hasib’s wife Shama and Shabina Ahjum, Shami’s sister are among those who have been named in the FIR.
Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had withheld Shami’s contract and is currently looking into the matter
