Last weekend, Police sought Shami's itinerary details from India's tour of South Africa from the Indian cricket board to check if he had gone to Dubai as claimed by his estranged wife Hasin Jahan.
Police wanted to find out whether he was on the same flight with the other players or was on a different one after they left South Africa. They also wanted to know whether Shami went there officially with the entire team or had taken the detour at his own expense.

Other questions that police asked are for how long and where did Shami stay in Dubai? And whether he was well within the guidelines of the BCCI or not.
Hasin Jahan, in her complaint, had alleged that Shami had gone to Dubai to meet with a Pakistani model, Alishba, with whom he also shared a room at a five-star hotel.
Hasin had released a recording of an alleged phone call with Shami where the mail voice (apparently Shami's according to Hasin), is heard saying he met Alishba in Dubai to collect money sent by one Mohammad bhai.
But Alishba now claims she met Shami in Dubai but only by coincidence.
