Former Indian cricketer Chetan Chauhan decries BCCI withholding Mohammed Shami's contract

Following the serious allegations, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) withheld his central contract.

Shami's wife lodged an FIR against Shami and four of his family members in Kolkata's Jadavpur police station under several Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections, including section 498A, which amounts to cruelty to a woman by her husband or his relatives.

Meanwhile, his wife had stated that she would approach the BCCI to discuss on the same matter. "It's a tri-partite agreement between the player, the franchise and the BCCI".

Speaking to ANI, Dua said that they are now waiting for BCCI's opinion about whether they should allow Shami to join their camp, which will start at the end of the month.

"We are in a bit of Catch 22", Vinod Rai, chairman of the committee, told cricket website ESPNcricinfo.

Kolkata police joint commissioner Praveen Tripathi was quoted as saying, "Police have charged Indian pacer Mohammad Shami and his brother with sections related to rape, domestic violence and causing hurt with poisoning after Jahan's complaint".

A senior officer said the police would soon send a notice under Section 41A of CrPC, asking Shami to present himself before investigators. "We have filed police complaint at Lalbazar Police Headquarters".
