The Committee of Administrators had earlier assigned the Anti Corruption Unit to investigate the match-fixing charges levelled against Mohammed Shami. Now, it has been reported that four officials of the BCCI anti-corruption unit spoke to Hasin Jahan, wife of Shami.
According to the latest reports, the officials landed in Kolkata yesterday. They had a prolonged conversation with Hasin Jahan. Even her lawyer portrayed the BCCI officials had a word with her regarding the allegations that she excused Mohammed Shami of. However, he refused to give further details.
“I was not present at Lal Bazar. But I have learnt that the Board of Control for Cricket in India officials spoke to her. She was at Lal Bazar for the major part of the day,” Hasin Jahan’s lawyer Zakir Hussain told to the New Indian Express.
However, another source claimed that Hasin handed them some documents supporting the allegations she made. The officials also had a talk with her father and two daughters. Alongside fixing, Hasin Jahan has also accused Shami of domestic violence, attempt to murder and extramarital affairs.
The CoA had earlier asked the Anti Corruption Unit to restrict their investigations to the fixing matter only. Hasin Jahan had accused the pacer of taking money from a Pakistani girl through some Mohammed Bhai in the UK. The said incident led to BCCI keeping Shami’s contract on hold.
“The Committee of Administrators 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 ‘Alisba’,” the CoA had said in a letter to Neeraj Kumar, the head of the BCCI’s anti-corruption unit.”
The Anti Corruption Unit is supposed to submit a report to the CoA within a week’s time.
