Indian police file harassment, assault charges against cricketer Shami

Kolkata Police files chargesheet against Indian pacer Mohammed Shami for dowry and sexual harassment

India pacer Mohammed Shami was charged by Kolkata Police in dowry and sexual harassment cases on Thursday. In the chargesheet, Shami has been charged under sections 498A (dowry harassment) and 354A (sexual harassment).

Jahan, a former model, publicly accused Shami of having numerous affairs and harassment. Shami, however, maintained that Jahan's accusations were baseless.

She also accused Shami's family of domestic violence and on April 10, filed a domestic violence case against Shami and others in Kolkata's Alipore Court and also sought maintenance from her husband. The couple's bitter spat came into limelight on 7 March previous year; however, Shami had said that all this was a conspiracy to ruin his career.

News of the cricketer's marital discord became public past year when his wife Jahan, a former model, took to Facebook to accuse him of domestic violence and extra-marital affairs with a number of women. The charge sheet was submitted before a court in Kolkata. This had also led to BCCI omitting the pacer from the list of players with a central contract pending an investigation. In her complaint, she had accused Shami of torture, physical abuse and mental harassment. An internal investigation was conducted by BCCI on match-fixing accusations but Shami was given a clean chit.

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