The Kolkata police have charged Indian pacer Mohammed Shami with sexual harassment, India Today reported.
Shami has been charged under sections 498A (dowry harassment) and 354A (sexual harassment). The charge sheet was submitted before a court in Kolkata.
Hasin Jahan, Shami’s wife, had lodged a case at the Kolkata police headquarters in Lal Bazaar on March 8, 2018, accusing him of torture, physical abuse and mental harassment.
The row between the couple broke out after Jahan accused Shami of having an extra-marital affair. Shami has denied her claim and termed it a conspiracy to ruin his career.
