Kolkata, March 9 (CNMSports) - India pacer Mohammed Shami faces charges of attempting to murder his wife by poisoning her after the cricketer's wife Hasin Jahan accused him of physically and mentally torturing her and having extra-marital affairs, police said on Friday.
A First Information Report filed at the Jadavpur police station charges the cricketer and four others with various sections of the Indian Penal Code including attempt to murder, rape, criminal intimidation and causing hurt by means of poison.
"On the basis of a written complaint from Hasin Jahan, a case was recorded at the police station on March 8 against Shami and four others," a police official said.
Shami, 27, and his family have also been charged with subjecting his wife to cruelty, voluntarily causing hurt and acting in furtherance of common intention. An emotionally drained Hasin Jahan made journalists listen to an audio clip where Shami purportedly accepts his infidelity.
