Shami charged with violence after affairs claim

AFP, KOLKATA: Police on Friday charged Indian fast bowler Mohammad Shami after his wife filed a formal complaint alleging assault, domestic violence and infidelity.

Shami’s wife Hasin Jahan, a former model, filed a written complaint with the police in Kolkata just days after going public with claims that Shami had affairs with other women.

The controversy has already cost Shami as India's cricket board has put the 27-year-old bowler's annual contract with the national team on hold while an investigation is conducted.

“Police have charged Indian pacer Mohammad Shami and his brother with sections related to rape, domestic violence and causing hurt with poisoning after Jahan's complaint,” Kolkata police joint commissioner Praveen Tripathi told the news agency.

Jahan made headlines by making public on Tuesday a series of messages Shami allegedly sent to women during their four-year marriage.
