The Kolkata Police have seized Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami’s cell phone in the aftermath of charges levelled by wife Hasin Jahan. Furthermore, the police wrote to BCCI to seek information on Shami’s whereabouts post the South African tour.
The last couple has been torrid for India’s premier fast bowler in Test matches after a series of accusations slapped on him by his wife regarding domestic violence, illicit affairs, match-fixing and attempt to murder.
“We have sent a letter to the BCCI and (we are) waiting for their response. We have sought details of his (Shami) tours and routes. We are yet to receive any response from the body,” explained Joint Commissioner of Kolkata Police (Crime) Praveen Tripathi, according to Indian Express.
The police officials seized mobile phones of both complainant and the accused as a part of the ongoing investigation. The phones would be sent to forensic tests to verify few issues.
“We have seized the mobile phone and also some documents from the complainant. The mobile will be sent for forensic testing to verify certain things, including the audio clip voice. We will also investigate what network was being used with regard to the mobile and the applications that had been en vogue to communicate with people,” added Police.
In an exclusive interview with ABP, an emotional Shami intends to sort out family matters within closed doors without making hue and cry in public.
No way BCCI can hold someone’s contract on hold: CAB
“If this matter can be solved by talking, nothing can be better than that. Only patch up will do good for us and our daughter. If I have to go to Kolkata to solve the matter, I will. I am ready to talk, whenever she wants,” told Mohammed Shami in the interview.
CAB, on the other hand, found it unreasonable to put a stay on Shami’s central contract. According to the Ombudsman-cum-Ethics Officer of the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), BCCI has no right to put a hold on his contract.
“I don’t know that exact reason on why his contract was put on hold by the BCCI. But if the reason is his recent controversies with his wife, then I think this is illogical. No way BCCI can hold someone’s contract on hold on this ground,” mentioned Ushanath Banerjee according to News18.
