Indian pacer Mohammed Shami’s wife Hasin Jahan files written complaint against her husband and his family members press several non-bailable charges against him. The Kolkata Police has registered a case against India pacer under numerous sections of the Indian Penal Code including 498A, which amounts to cruelty to a woman by her husband or his relatives.
Joint Commissioner of Kolkata Police Praveen Tripathi said that the case has been recorded at Kolkata’s Jadhavpur Police Station on the basis of a written complaint by the fast bowler’s wife Hasin Jahan on Thursday.
The other charges registered against Shami are under Section498A (Husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty), 323 (Causing hurt), 307 (Attempt to murder), 376 (Punishment for rape), 506 (Criminal intimidation), 328 (Causing hurt by means of poison, etc., with intent to commit an offence), 34 (Acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of IPC.
Ms. Jahan has, over the last few days, made accusations on social media and television channels against her husband and his relatives. On Wednesday, Shami denied accusations of annoying his wife and having extra-marital affairs. The BCCI also put Shami’s annual contract on hold following the accusations.
However, Shami has refuted all the allegation and said that someone was misleading his wife. Talking to the media earlier, Shami said, “Hasin and her family have been saying that we will sit and sort out all issues, but I don’t know who has been misleading her”.
He further added, “As far as the allegation of compromising my performance while playing for the country is concerned, I would rather die than do something like this.”
