An FIR has been lodged against cricketer Mohammed Shami on Friday after a written complaint was filed by the fast bowler's wife. The FIR has been registered against Shami and his four other family members in Kolkata's Jadavpur police station under several Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections, including section 498A, which amounts to cruelty to a woman by her husband or his relatives.

The other charges recorded against Mohammed Shami are under Section 307 - attempt to murder, Section 323 - punishment for voluntarily causing hurt, Section 376 - rape, Section 506 - criminal intimidation, Section 328 and Section 34.

The cricketer's wife Hasin Jahan had alleged that Shami abused her physically and mentally and was also involved in several extra-marital affairs.

However, Shami has refuted all the allegation and said that someone was misleading his wife. Talking to the media earlier, Shami said, "Hasin and her family have been saying that we will sit and sort out all issues, but I don't know who has been misleading her".

"As far as allegation of compromising my performance while playing for the country is concerned, I would rather die than do something like this," he added.

Hasin Jahan also posted this tweet on social media site Twitter after her Facebook account was deleted.

I have not received any help from anyone. So I took to Facebook to speak of my ordeal. Why did Facebook block my account & deleted all the posts without my permission?: Hasin Jahan, wife of cricketer Mohammed Shami

According to ANI, Mohammed Shami earlier said this to the media, "As far as allegation of compromising my performance playing for the country is concerned, I would rather die than do something like this." Hasin(wife) and her family have been saying that we will sit and talk out all issues, but I don't know who has been misleading her: Mohammad Shami
