Mohammed Shami's wife Hasin Jahan to approach BCCI for justice

The BCCI has already withheld Shami's Central Contract as the police may start its inquiry on allegations of domestic violence.

India pacer Mohammed Shami faces charges of attempting to murder his wife by poisoning her after the cricketer's wife Hasin Jahan accused him of physically and mentally torturing her and having extra-marital affairs, police said on Friday.


The sections invoked against the 27-year-old pacer, who made his debut in November 2013, 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). Joint Commissioner of Kolkata Police Praveen Tripathi said that the case had been recorded at Kolkata's Jadhavpur Police Station on the base of a written complaint by the cricketer's wife Hasin Jahan on Thursday.

Shami, who has denied all the charges through a post on social media, also found himself out of the 26-member annual contracts system which was announced by the BCCI on Wednesday. "She said that this has been happening since five years, the fact is that we have been married just for four years", Shami said to news agency ANI. "He opened the door and let me go only when I screamed", she alleged.


She added, "If today I do not take this matter to the BCCI then other players will also get the courage to do such things". It's definitely part of a big conspiracy against me. She had also alleged that Shami stayed in a hotel in Dubai with one of his female friends from Karachi. Shami, reacting to these allegations, told reporters in Amroha, that his wife might have lost her mental balance.

Hasin Jahan further revealed that Mohammed Shami's family used to torture her relentlessly and in a massive allegation she even said that Shami's family wanted to kill her. "Why should I vacate it?" she asked.


In Jahan's words, "Everyone in their family used to torture me. I will request the Board to take some action against him". There is some conspiracy behind this, it may be a conspiracy to spoil my game. "I've all the evidences & will soon drag him to the court", Hasina Jahan had said.
