Kolkata Police file chargesheet against Indian cricketer Mohammed Shami and his brother at Alipore court today (14 March). The charges have been registered under non-bailable offences by Kolkata Police. "Court has now summoned Shami on 22 June", Lawyer Anirban Guhathakurta told The Indian Express on Thursday. Police recorded the statement of 28 people before filling the chargesheet in the case.

The chargesheet was filed against the fast bowler almost a year after his wife Hasin Jahan lodged a police complaint, levelling multiple charges against Shami and four of his family members.

A model by profession, Jahan had made headlines earlier in March past year when she alleged that her husband, Shami, had abused her physically and mentally and was involved in several extra-marital affairs. The chargesheet has been filed by his estranged wife Hasin Jahan. The board's anti-corruption officials, however, dismissed the case after investigations, declaring Shami not guilty. Jahan had also accused him of match-fixing but later on, BCCI had given the Bengal pacer a clean chit after completing an investigation. Shami was given a Grade A central contract by BCCI and is among the strong contenders for India's squad for the 2019 World Cup.

Shami, who recently became the fastest Indian bowler to reach 100 wickets in One Day Internationals, was India's highest wicket-taker in the ODI series against New Zealand with nine wickets in four matches.
