Hasin Jahan, the estranged wife of cricketer Mohammad Shami, joined the Congress on Tuesday. Mumbai Congress Committee president Sanjay Nirupam welcomed Jahan into the party at a function in the city.

There was no prior information either from the Congress or Hasin Jahan about her decision to join politics. Jahan, a former model, had hit the headlines earlier this year after she accused fast bowler Mohammad Shami of domestic violence and extra-marital affairs.

On March 9, the Kolkata Police had booked Shami and four others under various non-bailable and bailable sections on the basis of Jahan's complaint.

The case was registered under non-bailable IPC sections 307 (attempt to murder), 498-A (subjecting a woman to cruelty) and 376 (punishment for rape).

The BCCI on March 22 cleared Shami's central contract after its Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) exonerated him of corruption charges levelled by his wife Jahan.
