The Indian fast bowler is making headlines after his wife Hasin Jahan accused him of having affairs with multiple women and of domestic violence. Post Hasin Jahan's allegation, BCCI puts Mohammed Shami's contract on hold. Once again Shami landed into trouble, this time for corruption charged alleged on the cricketer.

Recently, The Committee of Administrators of the BCCI has called the anti-corruption wing to launch an investigation into an alleged illegal cash transaction made by the Indian Cricketer. According to report, Hasin Jahan had complained to the cops about his dodgy cash transactions made by her husband, Mohammed Shami when he had gone to Dubai.

The CoA of the BCCI has heard an audio recording of Shami's telephonic conversation with his wife Hasin Jahan, where he mentioned about a certain man named 'Mohammed Bhai' who allegedly sent some money to the Indian fast bowler through a Pakistani lady.

Jahan also alleged that Shami had accepted the money on the insistence of England based Mohammad Bhai.

The ACSU head Neeraj Kumar is investigating the corruption charges on the cricketer and will be submitting a report within a week.

"This has reference to the various media reports pertaining to allegations against Md. Shami. The Committee of Administrators has listened to the audio recording of a telephonic conversation which it is claimed is between Md. Shami and his wife. The said audio recording is available in public domain," Vinod Rai wrote in the letter, which is in possession of PTI.

"Please investigate the above assertions/ allegations under the BCCI Anti-Corruption Code and submit a report to the Committee of Administrators with your findings as to whether there is any basis to proceed further in terms thereof."

Rai wrote that the terms of investigation should cover (i) "the identity and antecedents of Mohammad Bhai and Alisba ; (ii) whether any money was in fact sent by the said Mohammad Bhai through the said Alisba to Md. Shami; and (iii) if yes, the purpose for which the said money was received by Md. Shami."

The investigation will be only about the corruption allegations, Rai asserted.

"The Committee of Administrators wishes to emphasize that the investigation be limited to the above issues only and not deal with any of the other allegations against Md. Shami unless you find that the same fall within the purview of the BCCI Anti-Corruption Code," he added.

Shami is already facing a case filed by his wife against him extra-marital affairs and assaults and his family of domestic violence and threatening her to kill her. Responding to the allegation, Shami denied all the accusation and said it is a conspiracy to defame him and derail his career.
