Indian cricketer Mohammed Shami on Sunday demanded thorough investigation into the allegation levelled against him by his wife Hasin Jahan.

Kolkata Police on Friday booked India pacer Mohammed Shami and four others under various non-bailable and bailable sections after his wife Hasin Jahan lodged a complaint of domestic violence and infidelity against the cricketer.

Brushing off the allegations Shami told ANI that, "There have been many accusations which are increasing day-by-day. I don't want to give an explanation about it and I want it to be investigated thoroughly."

He has been also charged under including section 498A, which amounts to cruelty to a woman by her husband or his relatives.

The other charges recorded against Shami are under Section 307 - attempt to murder, Section 323 - punishment for voluntarily causing hurt, Section 376 - rape, Section 506 - criminal intimidation, Section 328 and Section 34.

Shami's central contract was withheld by the BCCI after his wife accused him of domestic violence and adultery, charges that were denied by the cricketer. 

Responding on the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) discussing on the matter, the cricketer said that he has complete faith in the cricketing body.

"Have full faith on BCCI, whatever decision they take will be after much deliberation and investigation. I have no tension regarding that," Shami said.

Hasin Jahan on March 7 alleged that Shami abused her physically and mentally and is also involved in several extra-marital affairs.

Besides accusing the cricketer of abusing her, Hasin further said that she will drag the pacer to court for cheating on her.

Shami has rejected reports of his extramarital affairs, saying that someone is conspiring against him to ruin his career.

As per police reports, Shami’s brother has been booked under section 376 of IPC on the basis of the complaint of Jahan who alleged that he had touched her improperly.

Mohammad Shami and Hasin Jahan got married in 2014.
