NEW DELHI: Indian paceman Mohammed Shami has been charged under IPC 498A (dowry harassment) and 354A (sexual harassment).
According to media reports, the Kolkata police submitted the chargesheet on his estranged wife Hasin Jahan‘s complaint.
On 16th October, Jahan was inducted to the Indian National Congress. Mumbai Congress President, Mr. Sanjay Nirupam welcomed her to ‘Congress family’.
A model by profession, Jahan had made headlines earlier in March last year when she alleged that her husband, Shami, had abused her physically and mentally and was involved in several extra-marital affairs.
She also accused Shami’s family of domestic violence and on April 10, filed a domestic violence case against Shami and others in Kolkata’s Alipore Court and also sought maintenance from her husband.
Shami, however, has denied all the accusations made by his estranged wife.
