Hasin Jahan speaks at the press conference in Kolkata

After registering an FIR against her husband and Team India fast bowler Mohammed Shami, Hasin Jahan said that no can protect him and he will have to pay for his wrongdoings. In a press conference in Kolkata, she continued to put allegations on the troubled India pacer and urged West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to look into the matter.

"He can be a big bowler but not educated enough to hide his wrongdoings," she said on Saturday.

Acknowledging the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), which put Shami's annual contract on hold until he gets a clean chit in the case, she claimed that even the Indian cricket board can't protect him.

"BCCI won't take his side. They would not have kept his contract on hold if they were on his side. But he is egoistic of the fact that he is a big player and BCCI would protect him," she added.

Earlier in the day, four officials of the BCCI's anti-corruption wing landed in Kolkata and spoke to Jahan over allegations that the player was involved in match-fixing.

Sources said Jahan spent the larger part of the day at the city police headquarters Lal Bazar, where the ACU officials interacted with her on the issue.

"I was not present at Lal Bazar. But I have learnt that the Board of Control for Cricket in India officials spoke to her. She was at Lal Bazar for the major part of the day," Jahan's lawyer Zakir Hussain told IANS.

However, another source claimed that Hasin Jahan has handed to them some documents supporting her allegations that Shami met a woman in Dubai who was supposed to give him money sent by another person from Britain. The officials also spoke to Jahan's father and her two daughters.

Shami is currently the focus of an investigation of the Kolkata Police after Hasin Jahan accused the pacer and his family of domestic violence, attempt to murder and extra-marital affairs.

Earlier on Friday, Shami told India TV that he wants the BCCI to thoroughly investigate the fixing allegations levelled against him by his wife Jahan. Shami said he has full faith in the board that it will do justice to him.

"The BCCI is already looking into the matter. They are investigating it at the highest level.  I want all these allegations to be investigated thoroughly. These things hurt me. I have forever played with all my heart and will continue to do so," Shami told India TV.

Shami said he will never fix matches for money.

"I am from a middle-class family and have struggled a lot in life. I have never run after money. I have full faith in the BCCI that it will carry out a proper investigation and the justice will be delivered to me," he added. (Read full story)
