Mohammed Shami's wife threatened by man; accused arrested
Mohammed Shami is currently in Australia, ahead of Team India's tour, which gets underway from Friday. He and his wife are now not on good terms after the latter reported against him, on cases of domestic violence and alleged extra-marital affairs.
Indian seamer Mohammed Shami's life off the field does not seem to be going smooth. He is already fighting a case of domestic violence and extra-marital affair, alleged by his wife.
Meanwhile, recently, his wife has been on the receiving end of a man, who has been threatening her. As per a police report by Hasin Jahan, a man had made calls to her demanding money for the past two months.
"First, it was Jahan's former domestic help, who started calling her, demanding money. Then, it was a man, claiming to be the woman's son. He was demanding money and threatened that otherwise, he will post her personal photographs and mobile numbers on social media. The person also hurled abuses at her," said the concerned police officer, reports PTI.
Nonetheless, based upon the complaint, the cops arrested the man from the Canning Station Road area in Kolkata. "Scanning both the numbers from where she was getting the calls, we picked up the accused on Tuesday night. A case has been started. We are also looking for the woman," the officer added.
It was in March 2018, when Jahan had filed a First Information Report (FIR) against Shami and his family, for domestic violence, along with adultery. He was further charged for attempted murder and rape, while she also levelled match-fixing charges against him.
Although the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had initially withheld his contract, he was handed it back after the Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) cleared him. He was issued an arrest warrant in September 2019, only to be revoked later by a district court.
