Priyanka Dutta, Kolkata: Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami has been cleared by BCCI’s anti-corruption unit chief Neeraj Kumar over his wife’s allegation of a match-fixing.
” I am very much happy . I know this news from media report. There are several allegations raised against my characters. I will Play For My Nation, my country ‘India’. I am genuinely happy.” in a first reaction to Kolkata24x7.com, Mohammad Shami says.
The Board feels that allegations of domestic violence levelled by Shami’s wife Hasin Jahan are completely under police jurisdiction and they have nothing to do with it.
According to the press release by BCCI, the Supreme Court’s appointed Committee of Administrations (CoA) had requested Neeraj Kumar, former Police Commissioner of Delhi and Head of BCCI anti-corruption unit, to investigate the allegations against the Indian pacer.
Kumar has submitted his report to the CoA based on which the Supreme court-appointed committee has decided to clear Shami of the corruption charges, the press release stated.
“I am very much thankful to BCCI. Truth will come soon. It was a big conspiracy against me and there is an attempt to malign me and harm my game.”, the Indian Cricketer further claims to Kolkata24x7.com.
Shami is currently the focus of an investigation of the Kolkata Police after Hasin Jahan accused the pacer and his family of domestic violence, attempt to murder and extra-marital affairs.
The Indian bowler further added that “I have cried for 50 times since last 15 days. An allegation like match fixing is the brutal allegation for any cricketer. I am a cricketer. You can understand in which situation I was running through.”
Earlier,the 27-year-old Indian bowler reacted on Twitter and Facebook and said that all the allegations were completely false.
He posted: “Ye jitna bhi news hamara personal life ke bare may chal raha hai, ye sab sarasar jhut hai, ye koi bahut bada humare khilap sajish hai or ye mujhe Badnam karne or mera game kharab karne ka kosis ki ja rahi hai (all these news reports about our personal lives are completely false. This is a big conspiracy against us and there is an attempt to malign me and harm my game.”
