Hasin Jahan made public the alleged Facebook chat with several of Shami’s women on Facebook, alleging that she had illicit relations with these women.
Recently, Shami’s US visa was rejected due to current police records against him on charges of domestic violence and adultery.
Later the BCCI immediately came into action and wrote a letter to the US Embassy to resolve the matter. CEO Rahul Johri wrote a letter to the US embassy and submitted a full police report about Shami’s contribution to the Indian team and marital discord with his estranged wife. After this he got permission.
