Team India pacer Mohammed Shami has now found himself in a rut once again as his wife Hasin Jahan has filed a domestic violence case against the bowler and his family in Kolkata's Alipore Court on Tuesday.
Jahan also sought maintenance from Shami after she allegedly accused the pacer of domestic violence, infidelity, attempt to murder and match-fixing.
Shami's wife had earlier filed a complaint against him at the Lalbazar police station following which he was charged under various non-bailable and bailable sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), including Section 498A which amounts to cruelty to a woman by her husband or his relatives.
Jahan had alleged that Shami abused her physically and mentally and that he was also involved in several extra-marital affairs.
Shami has rejected all allegations and said that it was a conspiracy against him.
After the allegations were imposed on Shami, the Board of Control for Cricket of India (BCCI) had sent the Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) to investigate the matter of match-fixing. Shami was soon cleared of the charges and was given a B grade contract by the Indian board and is now currently playing for the Delhi Daredevils in the 2018 IPL season.
