India court stays arrest warrant issued against Mohammed Shami

A district court has stayed an arrest warrant against India paceman Mohammed Shami in relation to accusations of domestic assault and sexual harassment by his estranged wife.

The 29-year-old was last week ordered to appear before Alipore Court in 15 days or face arrest after being charged by the West Bengal police.

Shami had challenged the order in the District and Sessions Court through his counsel Salim Rahaman.

Rahaman claimed the order was stayed by district judge Rai Chattopadhyay in Alipore Court for almost two months.

"It was a warrant more procedural in nature," he said.

"The case was listed for further hearing on November 2."

Shami has been involved in a protracted legal battle with his wife and former model Hasin Jahan since March 2018.

She had filed the case of domestic violence against Shami and a few of his family members last year including publicly accusing the cricketer of having illicit affairs.

Jahan had also accused Shami of corruption - a charge later exonerated by the Board of Control for Cricket in India following an investigation.

Shami has dismissed all allegations against him, calling it a tactic to harm his reputation.
