Mohammed Shami ‘Not Injured’ in Road Accident – Dehradun Police
Premier India pacer, Mohammed Shami did not injure in the road accident while travelling from Dehradun, says Dehradun Police to the Indian Express.
Meanwhile, as reported earlier, Shami suffered a blow to his head in a car accident while travelling to Delhi from Dehradun.
Dilwar Singh, Station Officer of Dehradun’s Clement Town police station said Shami was not in the car at the time of the accident.
“According to the information we have received, Mohammed Shami has not received any injury. Shami was leaving Dehradun in the morning and was part of a convoy where one of the cars met with an accident. However, our information says that Shami was not in that car,” he said.
Meanwhile, Shami sustained a head injury and received ten stitches in a local hospital at Dehradun.
However, he was discharged from the hospital and is recuperating. The doctor later admitted it would not affect his injuries.
Police filed an FIR against the truck driver under section 279 (rash driving), 337 (causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others), 338 (causing grievous hurt) and 427 (committing mischief) of Indian Penal Code.
Police arrested the truck driver, identified as Bhura Ahmed, a resident of Budhana in Muzaffarnagar district of Uttar Pradesh.
The incident occurred just three days after BCCI cleared Shami of match-fixing charges. Shami’s estranged wife Hasin Jahan accused him of taking money from a Pakistan-based girl named Alishba.
After giving Shami a clean chit, BCCI also awarded him a grade B annual retainership contract. As a result, Shami will now earn Rs 3 crore annually from BCCI.
Also, he will take part in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Delhi Daredevils retained Shami at the auctions for Rs 3 crore.
The right-arm pacer is also booked on various charges by Kolkata Police on the allegations of his wife. Jahan accused Shami of domestic violence and adultery.
