Indian speedster Mohammed Shami’s alleged adultery case has taken a new turn with the Kolkata Police asking the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to provide details of the Indian cricket team player’s alleged visit to Dubai on the way back to India from the recent tour to South Africa. Kolkata Police is investigating Shami under several sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) after his wife Hasin Jahan filed a complaint against him for adultery and other offenses. Kolkata Police sent the letter on Sunday, said an officer on conditions of anonymity.
27-year-old cricketer Mohammad Shami, an India Test team regular, has been accused of having multiple affairs by his wife. Interestingly, Shami, who was part of India A in the Deodhar Trophy, has been left out of the BCCI’s new central contracts list after his wife’s charges.
Indian speedster Mohammad Shami was part of the India Test team that played three Tests from January 5 to January 27 in South Africa. Hasin Jahan alleged in her complaint to the police that her husband went to Dubai to meet a Pakistani woman, and concealed the trip from her.
The sections invoked against Shami include 307 (attempt to murder), 498A (domestic violence), 506 (criminal intimidation), 328 (causing hurt by means of poison), 34 (acts by several persons in furtherance of common intention) and 376 (rape). The last section was brought against Mohammed Shami’s elder brother. Offenses under some sections are non-bailable and carry prison terms of up to 10 years or more.
