Indian cricketer Mohammed Shami has been charged with attempt to murder following a complaint filed by his wife Hasin Jahan in Kolkata. Seven charges have been levelled against the India pacer, one of them being attempt to murder by "food poisoning and physical attack".
A rape charge has also been levelled against Shami's elder brother. Shami has been charged under section 498 A, 323, 307, 376, 506, 328, 34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
The Indian cricketer's wife Hasin Jahan posted screenshots on her Facebook account of Shami's alleged 'WhatsApp' and 'Facebook Messenger' conversations with multiple women. She also uploaded photos and phone numbers of the women. Hasin Jahan alleged that Shami, 27, and members of his family had even tried to kill her.
Denying allegations of match fixing claims by his wife, Shami had said: "As far as the allegation of compromising my performance playing for the country is concerned, I would rather die than do something like this."
"Hasin (wife) and her family have been saying that we will sit and talk out all issues, but I don't know who has been misleading her," Shami said.
Hasin Jahan had alleged that Shami physically assaulted her after returning from the South Africa tour last month.
