Mohammed Shami has been charged under non-bailable sections by Kolkata Police. The Indian pacer's World Cup campaign could take a serious hit as the next hearing, in this case, is scheduled for June 22.

According to media reports, the Kolkata police submitted the chargesheet on his estranged wife Hasin Jahan's complaint.

Shami, who is expected to lead India's pace attack in the upcoming cricket World Cup in England and Wales, has been locked in a protracted legal battle with Hasin Jahan since March 2018.

The allegations leveled by Hasin forced the BCCI to omit Shami from the central contracts list pending investigations.

However, after a complete investigation by BCCI, he was given a clean chit and they reinstated his central contract. He was also sidelined from the majority of the matches by the Delhi franchise from the Indian Premier League (IPL).

On March 8 past year, Kolkata police had registered an FIR against Shami, who, along with his family members were booked under section 498 A (Husband or relative of Husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 307 (attempt to murder), 376 (rape), 506 (criminal intimidation), 328 (causing hurt by means of poison), 34 (Acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of IPC. The names of three of his family members - his parents and sister-in-law - have been dropped from the final chargesheet filed at the Alipore ACJM court on Thursday. Shami is now an important part of Team India's Test as well as ODI squads.
