Indian bowler Mohammed Shami has been charged with domestic violence and harassment by the Kolkata police based on complaint by his wife, Hasin Jahan. In the past Shami's wife Jahan has alleged him of extra-marital affair and match-fixing. But the BCCI gave a clean-shit to him after their internal probe.
But the fresh charges indicate it is a major blow to Shami who is looking to seal his place in the World Cup squad which is scheduled from May this year. As per the reports, Shami is charged under IPC 498A (dowry harassment) and 354A (sexual harassment). Both are non-bailable cases.
Shami's lawyered spoke to the media and informed they would respond to the notices appropriately. Shami tied knot with Hasin Jahan in 2014.
