Mohammed Shami charged with sexual harrassment



Mohammed Shami has been charged with non-bailable offences by the Kolkata Police under Indian Penal Code 498A and Indian Penal Code 354A for dowry harrassment and sexual harrassment, respectively. Shami has been embroiled in a year-long battle with his wife Hasin Jahan who made these allegations against the Indian pacer.

"The chargesheet has been filed against Shami under IPC 498A (for mental and physical torture, and dowry harassment) and 354A (for sexual harassment and assault," Dip Narayan Pakrashi, public prosecutor in the eastern city of Kolkata, told AFP.

"If charges are proved (in court), the punishment may amount to five years imprisonment and fine," Pakrashi added.

The spat between Shami and his wife came to the fore in March 2018 when Hasin Jahan had posted some screenshots alleging that her husband was having an affair. Hasin Jahan had even levelled match fixing accusations against Shami following which he was omitted from the central contracts list by the BCCI pending investigations. BCCI therefore completed their internal investigation on match fixing accusations and gave him a clean chit and reinstated his central contract.
