Team India pacer Mohammed Shami has reportedly gone missing after his wife Hasin Jahan filed an FIR against her husband, allegedly accusing the cricketer of attempted murder and domestic violence. Jahan had lodged the complaint to the Kolkata police on Friday (March 9).
After the FIR was lodged, the people close to the Team India pacer do have any idea about Shami's whereabouts. As reports suggest, Shami has not been attending his calls and his phone has been switched off. It is reported that after 9,00 PM IST on Friday, no one has been in touch or has seen Shami. His last location was Delhi and Ghaziabad and since then, there has been no further information.
Shami's wife releases audio tape of her phone conversation, claims 'he took money from Pak girl Alishba'
As reported, Mohammed Shami was last present with his elder brother at the Delhi airport and from there on they travelled to Ghaziabad. A few members of his family had travelled to Kolkata to sort matters out with his wife Hasin Jahan. The last time a family member contacted Shami, the pacer was stuck in Pilkhuwa traffic jam (near Ghaziabad) around 9 PM. Shami instructed his family to avoid the media and that he would handle matters himself with the evidences that he has. Since then Shami and his brother's phones have been switched off.
As reports suggest, the Kolkata police have not yet contacted or visited Shami's house and have not taken any leads to arrest the Team India pacer. Hasin Jahan contacted the Kolkata Police's Womens Grievance Cell and lodged the FIR on Friday (March 9).
Jahan has accused Shami of personal attacks, domestic violence, attempted murder and now even accusations of match-fixing. The Kolkata police has charged the Team India pacer under grave sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), which includes attempt to murder, a non-bailable offence.
Earlier on Friday, the FIR was registered against Shami and his four other family members in Kolkata's Jadavpur police station under several Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections, including section 498A, which amounts to cruelty to a woman by her husband or his relatives.
The other charges recorded against Shami are under Section 307 - attempt to murder, Section 323 - punishment for voluntarily causing hurt, Section 376 - rape, Section 506 - criminal intimidation, Section 328 and Section 34.
The cricketer's wife Hasin Jahan had alleged that Shami abused her physically and mentally and was also involved in several extra-marital affairs.
After alleging India fast bowler Mohammed Shami of infidelity and domestic violence, his wife Hasin made another shocking revelation on Friday in which she professed that the pacer was involved in match-fixing as well. Jahan alleged that Shami took money also from a Pakistani girl named Alishba, and the amount was delivered to him by a man called Mohammad Bhai, who stays in the United Kingdom.

The Team India pacer's wife has released an exclusive audio tape of her alleged phone conversation with Shami, in which he agreed that he has taken money from the girl in Pakistan. The cricketer, however, added in the alleged conversation that the money was transferred to him by his friend 'Mohammad' who lives in England.
Since the controversy, the Board of Control for Cricket of India (BCCI) has withheld the pacer's new contract and will wait for matters to conclude. It gets much worse for the pacer as India Premier League franchise Delhi Daredevils is as well awaiting for the BCCI's legal opinion, whether they should allow the pacer to join their camp.
Shami has been embroiled in a massive controversy after his wife Jahan in series of Facebook posts alleged the fast bowler of various transgressions in personal life.
