The FIR that was lodged was not only for illegitimate relationships but for emotional and physical abuse, attempt to murder and a charge of rape against Shami's elder brother as well.

"Police have charged Indian pacer Mohammad Shami and his brother with sections related to rape, domestic violence and causing hurt with poisoning after Jahan's complaint", Praveen Tripathi, the Kolkata police joint commissioner, told AFP.

Talking about her life, Hasin said: "I am not in touch with my first husband". The cricketer has been charged under various sections of the Indian Penal Code including Sections 498 A, 323, 307, 376, 506, 328, 34 of the Indian Penal Code. I confronted him but he threatened me and dared me to do whatever I wanted, saying he was not afraid of anyone. On Holi and every other festival, I've been with my family.

According to reports, the case registered against Shami has been taken up by detective department of Lal Bazar police of Kolkata.

Ace cricketer Mohammed Shami is in the middle of severe controversies, following his wife, Hasan Jahan's numerous allegations against him. "I've all evidences against him and will soon drag him to court", she said.

Former India captain Kapil Dev had advised Jahan to not take her family feuds out in the open terming her action as 'disgusting'.

His attorney, Stephen Houze , told WW that the accusations are "false" and that the case was thoroughly investigated. Police also reviewed seven photographs taken of the woman and one of her friends standing next to Cuban at the time.

"If Mohammed Shami can cheat me then he can cheat the country as well".

"As far as allegation of compromising my performance while playing for the country is concerned, I would rather die than do something like this", he added.

His name was ommitted from the BCCI central contract list with sources suggesting that the board is keeping an eye on the allegations and the case before taking the next step.

A BCCI supervisory committee said the allegations, made by Shami's wife, Hasin Jahan, had put them in a hard position.

"Though I raised the issue with him hoping he would correct himself he refused to do so and continued with his dirty ways", Jehan said.

Shami's wife has accused the cricketer of adultery and domestic violence, claims the player has denied. Supporting her claims, she posted several screenshots of his Messenger and WhatsApp messages on her Facebook profile.
