BCCI clears corruption charges; Mohammed Shami gets central contract
The BCCI has handed Mohammed Shami a Grade B central contract after receiving clearance from the cricket board’s Anti-corruption Unit (ACU), which also paved the way for him to play for Delhi Daredevils in the IPL. The fast bowler’s contract had been held back pending investigation into the possibility that he had received money from a man through a woman based in Pakistan.
While the Kolkata Police is probing the criminal charges against Shami, including Section 307 (attempt to murder), based on a complaint filed by his wife Hasin Jahan, the BCCI restricted its inquiry solely to breaching the anti-corruption code for the players.
The Committee of Administrators (CoA) had asked the ACU chief Neeraj Kumar to look into whether Shami had taken any money from a certain England-based Mohammed bhai, sent to him through a Pakistani woman, Alishba, in Dubai.
On Thursday, the BCCI release said: “The Hon’ble Supreme Court of India appointed Committee of Administrators had requested Mr Neeraj Kumar, former Police Commissioner of Delhi and Head of BCCI Anti-Corruption Unit, to investigate the allegations against Mohd. Shami insofar as they pertain to the provisions of the BCCI Anti-Corruption Code.
