Shami is at the centre of controversy following a series of accusations made by his wife Hasin Jahan. Earlier on Saturday, Jahan shared a new screenshot of her husband’s alleged chat with an African woman on her Facebook account and captioned it as, “Mere patidev ki pasand.”
Shami has been booked under various non-bailable, including attempt to murder, and bailable sections of the Indian Penal Code. Jahan has also alleged that Shami had taken money from a Pakistani woman named Alishba on the insistence of an England-based businessman, Mohammad Bhai.
However, a few days back, the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) Anti-Corruption Unit gave him a clean chit over the allegations levelled by his wife.
