Pacer Mohammed Shami charged in alleged dowry, harassment case

Mohammed Shami

The Kolkata police filed the chargesheet on complaints by his estranged wife Hasin Jahan under IPC 498A (dowry harassment) and 354A (sexual harassment), with the next hearing scheduled on June 22.

Cricketer Mohammed Shami's World Cup participation chance suffered a huge blow after a chargesheet was filed against him and his brother for dowry and sexual harassment at Alipore court on Thursday. However, in some temporary relief to the cricketer, the police dropped the more serious charges that were registered in the FIR including sections 307 (attempt to murder), and 376 (punishment for rape) besides criminal intimidation. Shami, however, maintained that Jahan's accusations were baseless. Hasin had also accused Shami of being involved in match-fixing.

Jahan had lodged a police case at the Kolkata police headquarters on 8 March 2018, accusing him and his family of torture, physical abuse and mental harassment. This had also led to BCCI omitting the pacer from the list of players with a central contract pending an investigation. Shami was given a Grade A central contract by BCCI and is among the strong contenders for India's squad for the 2019 World Cup.

The turmoil in personal had affected Shami's performances on the cricketing field too and he was dropped from Afghanistan Test for being unfit.

Shami last played in the just-concluded One Day International series against Australia, where he picked five wickets in four matches.
