Charge sheet alleging dowry and sexual harassment filed against cricketer Mohammed Shami

Shami is in a long-standing dispute with his wife after the latter came out with photos of his alleged affair on social media.

Trouble mounts for Indian cricket team’s fast bowler Mohammed Shami as the Kolkata police submitted a charge sheet against him at the Alipore police court. Based on the complaint lodged by his estranged wife Hasin Jahan, Shami has been charged under IPC 498A(dowry harassment) and 354A(sexual harassment).

It is notable to mention that the next hearing of the case has been fixed on June 22.

Shami is in a long-standing dispute with his wife after the latter came out with photos of his alleged affair on social media. Last year she had accused Shami of domestic violence and sexual abuse. However, Shami refuted the allegations, claiming it to be a conspiracy to ruin his cricketing career.

Hasin Jahan had also accused Shami of indulging in match-fixing, following which BCCI had withheld his name from the central contract list. However, after the internal investigation on match-fixing accusations were found to be untrue, Shami was reinstated by the BCCI in the Grade A contract list.

With World Cup just a couple of months away, charge-sheet against Shami could be a huge setback for the cricketer who battled overwhelming odds to make it back into the Indian cricket team.
