Kolkata Police summons Mohammed Shami in domestic abuse case


New Delhi, April 17: Kolkata Police has issued summon for Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami to be present at 2 pm on Wednesday for interrogation after a domestic abuse complaint was filed by his wife Hasin Jahan.

Before the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) began, Shami was cleared by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) after the cricketer’s estranged wife alleged him to be involved in match-fixing, but Jahan went on to seek help from Shami’s IPL employers Delhi, requesting them to bar her husband from playing in the coming season of the league.

Jahan met the Delhi franchise’s CEO, Hemant Dua. “I kept my point in front of Hemant sir to not keep Shami in the IPL team until he resolves his family feud,” Jahan told news agency ANI.

However, it was overlooked and Shami is playing the IPL’s Delhi Daredevils at the moment.

Jahan alleges that Shami has multiple extramarital affairs and also lodged a case against her husband for domestic violence.

However, Shami has always denied the allegations, saying it was an attempt to derail his cricketing career.

Delhi had retained Shami in the IPL auction this January by using the ‘Right to Match’ for Rs 3 crore. Also, following an all-clear from its anti-corruption unit, the BCCI offered Shami the Grade B contract that was initially withheld following Jahan’s allegations.
