The Free Press Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

NEW DELHI: The Com­mit­tee of Ad­min­is­tra­tors (CoA) chair­man Vinod Rai has in­structed BCCI's Anti-Cor­rup­tion chief Neeraj Ku­mar to probe al­leged cor­rup­tion al­le­ga­tions against Mo­ham­mad Shami, sur­faced dur­ing a re­ported tele­phonic con­ver­sa­tion be­tween the fast bowler and his wife Hasin Ja­han. Ja­han has also filed a po­lice com­plaint against the pacer al­leg­ing in­fi­delity and do­mes­tic vi­o­lence, re­sult­ing in BCCI with­hold­ing Shami's cen­tral con­tract. The CoA chief asked Ku­mar to sub­mit a re­port within a week. It is to be noted that the let­ter nowhere men­tions the word "match-fix­ing". Last week, Ja­han on her Face­book page al­leged that Shami was cheat­ing on her and that she was a vic­tim of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence. Shami, though has de­nied all the al­le­ga­tions, say­ing it was a con­spir­acy to de­fame him and ruin his ca­reer.
