Mohammed Shami-Hasin Jahan controversy: Shami’s wife sends complaint copy to CoA


Mohammed Shami’s wife Hasin Jahan, on Thursday, sent the complaint copy to Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) chief Vinod Rai for a probe into her allegations of match-fixing.

“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,” Hasin Jahan’s lawyer Zakir Hussain said.

Jahan has alleged that Shami had taken money from a Pakistani woman named Alishba on the insistence of an England-based businessman, Mohammad Bhai. Rai has instructed the BCCI’s Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) chief Neeraj Kumar to look into the corruption allegations levelled against Shami by his wife.

Jahan had filed a police complaint against the pacer, alleging infidelity and domestic violence, which had resulted in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) withholding Shami’s central contract.

The Kolkata Police had last week booked Shami and four others under various sections of the IPC, following Jahan’s complaint. The case was lodged under sections 498A (cruelty to a woman by her husband or his relatives), 307 (attempt to murder), 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 376 (rape), 506 (criminal intimidation), 328 (causing hurt by means of poison) of the Indian Penal Code.

Meanwhile, Mohammed Shami’s future in the cash-rich league will be the top priority when the Governing Council of Indian Premier League will meet at the BCCI headquarters in Mumbai on Friday.
