New Delhi: Finally, Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) has woken up to the charges of match-fixing against speedster Mohammed Shami, reports DNA correspondent Chander Shekhar Luthra. The Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (COA) has asked its Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) led by Neeraj Kumar to investigate the allegations made by Shami’s wife Hasin Jahan that the pacer took money from a Pakistani girl named ‘Alishba’ after the insistence of an England-based businessman Mohammed Bhai.
DNA has reliably learnt that COA has swung into action on Wednesday morning and specifically asked former Delhi Police chief to pay attention to the alleged “audio recording” of the telephone conversation between Shami and his wife.
In the wake of the allegations made by the cricketer’s wife, the BCCI has kept Shami’s contract on hold last week. Since the contract issue has to be resolved, COA has requested ACSU to submit report within the next seven days.
