Mohammed Shami has been charged sheeted by Kolkata Police as they submitted the documents before the Alipore police court.
Shami’s wife Hasin 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.
With the ICC World Cup 2019 approaching, the chargesheet comes as a major blow for the premier India pacer.
India pacer Mohammed Shami has been charged under IPC 498A and 354A for dowry harassment and sexual harassment respectively.
