Mohd Shami - InsideSport

BCCI has today announced Mohd Shami’s annual retainership contract in Grade ‘B’ after the completion of the investigation into match-fixing allegations put forth by his wife Hasin Jahan on him.

The Hon’ble Supreme Court of India appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) 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.

Mr Neeraj Kumar has submitted his confidential report to the CoA. Based on the conclusions in the said report, the CoA is of the view that no further actions/proceedings under the BCCI anti-corruption code are warranted in the matter.

For this reason, the BCCI has proceeded with offering a Grade ‘B’ annual retainership contract worth 3 crores to Mohd. Shami.

Shami’s annual contract was withheld by BCCI CoA after his wife accused him of extra-marital affairs, domestic violence and match-fixing.
