Police file dowry, sexual harassment charges against Indian cricketer Shami

14 March 2019

As per ANI, a chargesheet has been filed in Alipore police court against Shami under IPC 498A (dowry harassment) and 354A (sexual harassment).

News of the cricketer's marital discord became public past year when his wife Jahan, a former model, took to Facebook to accuse him of domestic violence and extra-marital affairs with a number of women. Hasin Jahan had even levelled match fixing accusations against Shami following which he was omitted from the central contracts list by the BCCI pending investigations. However, in some temporary relief to the cricketer, the police dropped the more serious charges that were registered in the FIR including sections 307 (attempt to murder), and 376 (punishment for rape) besides criminal intimidation. She had produced screenshots of Shami's alleged conversation with his girlfriend, who, according to Jahan, he had met in Dubai.
