Kolkata: An arrest warrant has been issued against Indian pacer Mohammed Shami in a domestic violence case at a court, here on Monday.
The 28-year-old has 15 days to surrender and apply for bail for the accusations levelled against him by his estranged wife Hasin Jahan.
The judge of the Alipore court issued the warrant around six months after the police filed a charge sheet in the case against the celebrated cricketer under Section 498A (domestic violence) and 354A (sexual harassment).
However, the BCCI has made it clear that no action will be taken against the bowler till they see the charge sheet.
"Yes, we do understand that an arrest warrant has been issued. But don’t really see us getting involved in this at this point in time. Once we see the charge sheet, we can decide how things stand and if the BCCI constitution calls for any action. But at this point in time, I would say it is too early to take a call on the matter,” a BCCI official said.
Shami is presently in the Caribbean islands as part of the Indian Test team which is playing the second Test of the two-match series against the West Indies.
