New Delhi, March 14: The Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators(COA) has asked BCCI’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) to investigate the allegations made by Mohammed Shami’s wife Hasin Jahan on the pacer that he accepted money from a Pakistani girl to fix matches.
The COA has asked former Delhi Police chief Neeraj Kumar, who heads the ACSU, to pay attention to the alleged audio recording of the telephonic conversation between Mohammed Shami and his wife.
The BCCI has kept Mohammed Shami’s contract on hold after Hasin Jahan levelled serious allegations against the pacer. Since the issue of awarding the contract is to be resolved, the COA has requested ACSU to submit a report with the next seven days, reported DNA.
The COA has asked Neeraj Kumar to investigate Mohammed Shami on three specific points. The first is to establish the identity and antecedents of ‘Mohammad Bhai’ and ‘Alishba’. The second is to find out whether any money was sent by Mohammad Bhai through Alishba, and whether Shami received the money.
“The COA is concerned only with such portion of the said audio recording in which the person, who it is claimed is Md. Shami, is heard saying another person by the name of ‘Mohammad Bhai’ had sent money to Md. Shami through a Pakistani lady by the name of ‘Alishba,” stated COA’s letter, a copy of which is in possession of DNA.
The COA has asked the anti-corruption body to just focus on the investigation of only these aspects of the allegations levelled by Hasin Jahan.
The Kolkata Police on Tuesday sent a letter to the BCCI to disclose the travel details of Shami after Team India’s tour to South Africa got over.
