IPL 2018: Mohammed Shami Cleared to Join Daredevils After a Three-hour Interrogation
Delhi Daredevils (DD) fast bowler, Mohammed Shami, who was asked to stay back by Kolkata Police, post-Daredevils’ match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), has now been cleared to join his team in Bengaluru.
The past one month is plagued with series allegations made by Shami’s wife, Hasin Jahan, regarding domestic violence, physical and mental torture and even attempt to rape and murder.
Delhi played their fourth game of the tournament at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata which they lost by a massive margin of over 70 runs.
The team already headed to Bengaluru for their fifth consecutive away game this season on April 21. The local police asked Shami to stay back as a part of the interrogation procedure.
Shami is fully cooperating in this case: Joint Commissioner
“We have got no objection in Shami joining his IPL side. But if need be, we will call him again,” Praveen Tripathi, the Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime), stated to the reporters as per NDTV.
The interrogation session ran for over three hours.
“We can call him anytime but at this point in time, we don’t find it is necessary. He’s fully cooperating in this case,” affirmed Tripathi further.
However, Police did not provide any substantial judgement on whether the fast bowler is off the hook.
“Satisfaction is not the answer. We examined him professionally, got our answers and after that the investigation will take its course,” said the Joint Commissioner.
Hasin Jahan also accused Shami’s brother, Hasib Ahmed of an attempt to rape and murder in their hometown in UP.
Before Mohammed Shami Kolkata Police summoned his elder brother owing to the investigation process.
“I’ve no idea about the police escort. It’s not in my knowledge. Please clarify this with the headquarters, safety and security of Indian players is a different issue, the two were interrogated separately as well as together,” Tripathi concluded.
