CoA asks ACU to investigate fixing charges against Mohammed Shami
From the Web Desk, 14/03/2018, New Delhi

Indian pacer Mohammed Shami’s troubles are mounting by the day. It was reported by TOI on Wednesday that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had asked its Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) to “look into the Shami issue” after his wife Hasin Jahan had levelled match fixing allegations against him. On Wednesday morning, the Supreme Court-run Committee of Administrators (CoA) head Vinod Rai wrote an e-mail (a copy is with TOI) to ACU head Neeraj Kumar, asking him to investigate these charges and submit a report within a week. The mail has also been marked to all the office-bearers of the BCCI and CEO, Rahul Johri.

“This has reference to the various media reports pertaining to allegations against Shami. The CoA has listened to the audio recording of a telephonic conversation which it is claimed is between Shami and his wife. The said audio recording is available in public domain. The CoA is concerned only with such portion of the said audio recording in which the person who it is claimed is Shami is heard saying another person by the name of “Mohammed Bhai” had sent money to Shami through a Pakistani lady by the name of “Alisba,” writes Rai.

Jahan has alleged that Shami could be involved in match-fixing as he accepted money from a Pakistani girl named Alisbah in Kolkata after being convinced by one England-based Mohammad Bhai.

Spelling out the areas which Kumar needs to probe in this case, Rai says: “Please investigate the above assertions/ allegations under the BCCI Anti-Corruption Code and submit a report to the CoA with your findings as to whether there is any basis to proceed further in terms thereof.

The 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 Shami; and (iii) if yes, the purpose for which the said money was received by Shami.”

As Shami’s contract has been withheld by the BCCI after Jahan’s allegations, Rai then gives a seven-day deadline to Kumar to submit his report on the issue.
