Kolkata, Apr 17: Cricketer Mohammed Shami has been summoned by the Kolkata police for questioning in connection with the complaint filed against him by his wife Hasin Jahan, reported ANI.
Reports said that the police asked him to be present at 2 pm on Wednesday for interrogation. Shami is one of the main pacers for IPL’s Delhi franchise. Shami’s wife had said that she had approached IPL’s Delhi franchise not to take him in the team.
