Kolkata: An FIR has been registered against cricketer Mohammed Shami and four other members of his family on the basis of a complaint filed by his wife Hasin Jahan who filed a complaint alleging adultery, torture and threat to her life.

Jahan had on Thursday lodged a police complaint against him and his family members at a Kolkata police station.

She had earlier posted screenshots of alleged conversations between Shami and several women. Jahan had also shared some photos of the bowler as “evidence” to support her allegations.

The cricketer has been booked under sections 498A (Husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty), 323 (Causing hurt), 307 (Attempt to murder), 376 (Punishment for rape), 506 (Criminal intimidation), 328 (Causing hurt by means of poison, etc., with intent to commit an offence.), 34 (Acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of IPC.

Shami said all the accusations are baseless.
