Kolkata: Police on Thursday has filed a chargesheet against India pacer Mohammed Shami under IPC 498A and 354A for dowry harassment and sexual harassment respectively.
Kolkata Police submitted the documents before the Alipore police court.
Hasin Jahan, Shami’s wife, had lodged a complaint against Shami and his elder brother Hasib Ahmed on March 8, 2018.
Jahan had filed a petition with the Alipore Court mentioning domestic violence and demanded Rs 7 lakh per month from him to maintain the family. The court accepted her plea and Rs 80,000 was allocated for her daughter.
However, on Thursday a charge-sheet was filed in the court over Hasin’s complaint about the domestic violence and torture she was subjected to by Shami and his family members.
Shami had denied all charges of threat, infidelity and dowry demand. Salim Rahman, Shami’s lawyer, said that three allegations of rape (against Shami’s elder brother), attempt to murder and physical assault had been excluded in the chargesheet.
She had also levelled charges against Shami of match-fixing and taking money from a Pakistan national, named Alishba, following which a team of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had initiated a probe. However, he was acquitted of the match-fixing charges.
