The case of tainted Indian pacer Mohammad Shami has become murkier with Kolkata police charging him with non-bailable offences such as attempt to murder, rape, assault and criminal intimidation.
This was done after his wife Hasin Jahan accused Shami of domestic violence and infidelity.
Shami's wife has been making one shocking claim after another. Apart from having illegitimate relations with several women, Jahan made another shocking claim suggesting Shami once forced her into a room with his brother, who then tried to touch her inappropriately.
Jahan filed a written complaint with the Kolkata police on Thursday, March 8, after going public with claims that Shami had affairs with other women.
Jahan had posted screenshots of Shami's alleged WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger conversations with different women and claiming that he was cheating on her with them, on Facebook.
While Shami initially claimed that he was being defamed and that the conversations are false, Jahan appeared before reporters and claimed that the conversations are not even 10 percent what he has done.
A senior officer said the police would soon send a notice under Section 41A of CrPC, asking Shami to present himself before investigators. Shami's mother Anjuman Ara Begum, sister Sabina Anjum, brother Mohammad Hasib Ahmed and his wife Shama Parveen were also booked. Police filed the FIR on the basis of Hasin Jahan's complaint made late on Thursday, reported the Times of India.
Jahan on Friday disclosed that several of Shami's relatives had been trying to call her ever since she made the police complaint. "I had informed each one of them about the torture Shami was inflicting on me. But none of them did anything, and instead they urged me to adjust as I was a woman. Why should I listen to them now?" she told the Times of India.
