Chetan Chauhan decries BCCI withholding Mohd. Shami's contract

Fast bowler Mohammed Shami and four others were on Friday booked under several non-bailable charges including rape and attempt to murder after his wife Hasin Jahan lodged an FIR at Jadavpur police station."The accused have been booked under non-bailable sections 307 (attempt to murder), 498 A (subjecting a woman to cruelty) and 376 (punishment for rape) of Indian Penal Code", Kolkata Police joint commissioner of police (crime) Praveen Tripathi said.

Former cricketer and Uttar Pradesh Minister Chetan Chauhan on Saturday said that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) should not withhold Mohammed Shami's license as "the issue has nothing to do with cricket". He further expressed concern about his daughter.

"But someone could easily point out and say this allegation is an unsavoury one and you are still rewarding him (Shami)". Replying to the question, "Is it the first time such conflict took place between the couple", he said that although conflicts took place none was of this type. "After I shouted, Shami opened the door", she added. "I was shocked and could not sleep", she said.

The BCCI has already withheld Shami's Central Contract as the police may start its inquiry on allegations of domestic violence.




But his career has now been rocked by his wife's shocking allegations, which were also made on her Facebook page on Tuesday.

Earlier, narrating one of the incidents, Hasin Jahan had claimed that Shami asked her to make a physical relationship with his brother.

The allegations of Hasin Jahan did not stop. Finally, he made an appealed to the entire family to resolve the issue mutually rather than making it public.

Hasin Jahan, who married the West Bangal-based cricketer four years back, raised a huge controversy by revealing three days back that Shami was a habitual flirt who was having multiple affairs with many women (including Pakistanis) who frequently visited his hotel suites during his tours overseas on cricketing assignments. She also uploaded photos and phone numbers of the women.
