Mohammad Shami, the Indian pacer has been accused by his wife of extramarital affairs with several women and physical violence on her for several months, which she took the matter on Wednesday evening to the Lalbazar Police Station.
"On the basis of the written letter of complaint of Hasin Jahan, a case has been recorded against Mohammed Shami and four others in Jadavpur Police Station", Tripathi said.
"I have been informed by Kolkata Police officers over phone that they have slapped non-bailable sections against Shami and starting a case against him", said Zakir Hossain, Jahan's lawyer. "Why did Facebook block my account & deleted all the posts without my permission?".
However, Shami has refused all the allegedly reports of his extra-marital affairs made by his wife. Jahan alleged that Shami last December forced her into a room at the family's Uttar Pradesh residence with his elder brother and locked the door. She even went on to the extent of calling Shami a traitor, hinting that the swing bowler received money from bookies to fix matches.More news: Trump wants 'concrete actions' from North Korea before meeting

He said along with four other persons, Shami has been charged with sections 498A (husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 307 (attempt to murder), 376 (rape), 506 (criminal intimidation), 328 (causing hurt by means of poison etc, with an intent to commit an offence) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance to common intention) of the IPC.
Before marrying Mohammed Shami, Jahan, a divorcee, had two children with her first marriage. A supervisory committee overseeing BCCI affairs said the allegations against Shami put them in a hard position and his contract was on hold pending review.
Interpreted to English, Shami says that, it is a big conspiracy to tarnish his reputation and some kind of a unusual distraction to force him to divert his attention from the games up ahead.
